I'm Adam Hadhazy, a freelance science writer based in New Jersey. I often write about astronomy, biology and psychology but enjoy delving into pretty much any topic under the Sun. I've chatted with Neal Conan on NPR about the science of the movie Avatar, investigated why peanut butter resists spoiling for so long and I've been this close to William Shatner. I have a master's degree in journalism from New York University's Science, Health and Environmental Reporting Program (SHERP). Recently I've been writing for Discover and Astrobiology Magazine. I also curate the astronomy news aggregator website Portal to the Universe.
