Elizabeth Preston is a freelance science writer and editor. Her blog, Inkfish, is published by Discover. Her writing has also appeared in publications such as the Atlantic, Wired, Nautilus, and the Boston Globe, as well as in PBS Digital Studios' "Gross Science" videos. She especially loves biology, but has covered everything from telescopes and vomit to poetry-writing computers.
Elizabeth studied biology and English at Williams College. She spent several years in Chicago working as the editor of the children's science magazine Muse, whose fanatical readers often threatened her with a pie in the face. Now she enjoys living in Boston and has mostly stopped checking over her shoulder for pastries.
