A chemist by training and a journalist by passion, Amanda has held various writing, editing, and leadership roles at C&EN since 2001. She earned her B.A. in chemistry at Johns Hopkins and her M.S. in chemistry at MIT, where she soon discovered that as a science journalist she could merge her fascination with the power and beauty of chemistry with her long-time love of telling stories. Today she oversees C&EN editorial operations and product development from her home office in Somerville, Massachusetts.
