(From my website: heatherzeiger.com)
My background in chemistry and bioethics gives me a unique perspective on science, technology, and medicine, and has allowed me to write on a variety of topics.
After graduating with an MS in chemistry in 2006, I was not going to go back to school, but several years later, I crossed over to the dark side (the humanities) and eventually earned an MA in bioethics. This amalgamation of the hard sciences and applied philosophy has served me well as a science writer. For one, it has helped me become a better translator and teacher. Scientists have a precise language, and each field of science has its own dialect. Bioethics, on the other hand, is multidisciplinary and requires clear, unambiguous language for a broad audience. Learning how to convert from one writing style (and way of thinking) to another was an experience whose value is more than the sum of the degrees alone.
