Lauren earned a Ph.D. in bioanalytical chemistry at Boston University and carried out a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institute of Standards & Technology studying nonlinear spectroscopy before realizing her calling as a journalist. She was standing in a dark laser lab at NIST alone--again--and decided what she really enjoyed was telling people about science. She joined C&EN in 2008 and is now the head of the science team at the magazine. In addition to being responsible for the magazine's scientific content, she oversees C&EN's multimedia team and the Journal News & Community group. She lives and works in Washington, D.C.
