Hi, I'm Emily
I tell science stories.
EMILY GREENHALGH is an award-winning marine biologist-turned-science communicator at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA. Her work has been featured in USA Today, the Boston Globe, Gizmodo, the World Meteorological Organization, and in science textbooks. She grew up in Rhode Island, staring into tide pools and dreaming about becoming a mermaid. Realizing that wasn't an actual job, she trained to become a marine biologist and then a science journalist.
Emily has a master's in Science Journalism from Boston University and a bachelor's degree in marine biology from the University of Rhode Island. She has worked on commercial fishing boats, for federal and nonprofit institutions, and has led multiple cross-agency social media efforts. She also thinks you should know that both "octopi" and "octopuses" are technically correct.
She loves discovering what makes research exciting, turning complex science into easy-to-understand stories, and helping scientists share their passions.
Her debut book Fun with Oceans and Seas was released by Z Kids, a Penguin Random House Imprint in September.
