Science journalist (South Africa)

Sarah Wild

In a previous life, Sarah studied physics, electronics, and English literature in an effort to make herself unemployable. It didn't work, so she read for an MSc in bioethics and health law. That sort of worked, and she is now a freelance science journalist, writing about particle physics, cosmology, and everything in between for local and international publications. She's written books, won awards, run national science desks, and learned to eat and interview someone at the same time. Sarah can usually be found in a desert somewhere in the world, looking at telescopes, fossils, or strange other-worldly creatures.
