About Merry Buckley, Ph.D.

mbavatarI am a freelance science writer who specializes in translating cutting-edge science for the lay public. With a Ph.D. in science and extensive experience in writing, I find myself situated between the two cultures in our society, science and the humanities. I strive to bridge the two cultures by explaining and revealing the natural world in a clear, accessible style.

I have experience writing for print and radio productions, and my past projects include magazine feature articles, reports on the proceedings of scientific meetings, and newsletter articles for a scientific society. I am skilled at writing for both scientists and the lay public.

I often travel for my work, attending scientific meetings and working with prominent scientists to compile summaries of their discussions.

I earned my Ph.D. in environmental microbiology at Michigan State University in 2001, and I have been a full-time freelance science writer since 2004. I live in beautiful Ithaca, New York, home to Cornell University and Ithaca College.
