From scientist to journalist: My anomalous career path and lessons learned along the way

Angela Fritz

My career path has been anything but ordinary, from a start in weather and climate research to a destination in science journalism, with a brief layover in software development in Silicon Valley. Many of the tools I’ve picked up along the way I developed during my time in academia. Since then, I’ve learned new and valuable things that have helped me become a better science communicator – methods and advice that are wholly applicable to the realm of academia and research. You’d be surprised how much you have in common with the journalists who interview you about your latest studies!
