Leigh Krietsch Boerner has done many things. She has a BS in Biology, a BA in Chemistry, and a Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry, all from Indiana University. Leigh has been a science writer since 2008, a freelancer for 10+ years, and was the Science Editor for Wirecutter for a bit. She’s also done some random stuff, including working as a preparator at the Art Institute of Chicago, following the Grateful Dead, and being tear-gassed 3 times. At C&EN, Leigh covers organic and medicinal chemistry, but also dabbles in inorganic and green chemistry. She writes very short fiction in her spare time. Leigh is based in Bloomington, Indiana.
