Natalie Angier
Natalie Angier, best known for her work as a science reporter for the New York Times, and for her book WOMAN: AN INTIMATE GEOGRAPHY--which has been translated into 17 languages--started writing short stories and poems in the first grade. According to an online interview in the New York Times, she "became a reporter almost as a default. I'd always wanted to be a writer,..." She was born in New York City in 1958 and grew up there. Ms. Angier received a BA from Barnard College in 1978, graduating magna cum laude in English, with a minor in physics and astronomy. While in college, she dreamed of starting a popular magazine about science for curious, intelligent lay readers. She began her journalism career as a staff writer for Discover magazine from 1980 through 1983. From 1983 through 1984, Angier was senior associate editor for Savvy, a women's magazine, and from 1984 through 1986, a staff science writer at Time magazine. She has written for the New York Times on science since 1990, and in 1991, won a Pulitzer Prize in the beat reporting category for her features on a variety of scientific topics for that paper. She has also been a winner of the Lewis Thomas Award for excellent writing about the life sciences. WOMAN: AN INTIMATE GEOGRAPHY, published in 1999, was a finalist for the National Book Award. Angier has been a professor at New York University's Graduate Program in Science and Environmental Reporting.
