Sarah Wells

Science Journalist

About Me

I am interested in the philosophical questions of science and technology, and have been known to wax poetic about dead mathematicians and the ennui of light particles from time to time. 

I completed my B.A. in English (with double minors in physics and computer science) at Clark University in 2017 and my M.S in Science Journalism at Boston University in 2018.


Since 2018, I have been freelancing for publications like Undark, Gizmodo, Motherboard, and PBS Space Time -- among others. In addition to covering the intersection of technology and society (and whatever else catches my eye) as a freelancer, I am also currently covering science and tech at Inverse

Working on a film or documentary project? I also come with a live-in cinematographer.
