Rachael Moeller Gorman loves being amazed by the world's mysteries; a career in science writing fits that passion perfectly.

Rachael graduated from Williams College in 1998 with a bachelorís degree in biology and a concentration in neuroscience and then studied the brain of the tiny worm C. elegans at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital. While there, she wrote pieces for Harvardís Focus, a science publication highlighting research from the universityís medical, dental, and public health schools. In 2000, she went back to school to study the environment and graduated from Brown University in 2002 with a masterís in environmental studies (and a thesis on air pollution and socioeconomic status in Providence, RI). After graduate school, she enjoyed internships at ScientificAmerican.com, where she wrote 40 science news stories in 10 weeks, The Annals of Improbable Research, producers of the yearly Ig Nobel prizes, and Discover magazine.

Rachael now freelances from her office outside Boston. She focuses on science, health, biology, the environment, and nutrition, and her clients currently include Proto, Good Housekeeping and EatingWell.
