Evan Lubofsky is a science and technology writer based on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Growing up in suburbia 25 miles west of Boston, he got his earliest glimpses of the ocean during occasional trips to the city and deep-sea fishing with his grandfather.
After studying journalism at UMass Amherst, he began writing about sensor and instrumentation technologies, eventually working with ocean scientists tell stories about coral reef ecology, estuarine studies, and other areas of research. He was a 2015 WHOI Ocean Science Journalism Fellow, and is a regular contributor to Oceanus, Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, and a range of other publications.
Lubofsky's fascination with the intersection of ocean science and technology has not only fueled his career pursuits, but his community service interests as well. He gives talks to Falmouth elementary and middle school students about coral science, has volunteered as a “Baywatcher” in the Coalition to Save Buzzards Bay’s coastal monitoring program and has helped the Provincetown Center for Coastal Research and Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve with water quality research projects on the Cape.
