Claudia Geib is a science writer and editor based in Boston, Massachusetts. Her fascination with science started in tide pools, where she spent much of her childhood, and led her on a meandering path through work at a national defense laboratory, a seagrass research lab, a coastal cleanup organization, and a green tech accelerator before she landed in science writing.  

She holds a master’s degree in science writing from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Though she considers herself a science omnivore, her primary focus is on the environment, the ocean, and marine wildlife, or at least slipping a reference to whales in an otherwise unrelated story.

When not writing, you can find her swimming, sailing, scuba diving, or otherwise trying to become amphibious. On any given day, she’s more likely to have water in her ear than not.
