Meet Mariah Quintanilla

Before I received a master’s degree in health, environment and science journalism from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, I studied entomology at the University of California, Davis. There, I worked in a plant pathology and forestry lab, and developed a fascination for science and nature. I soon realized that scientific journalism would allow me to combine my passion for writing and scientific discovery.

I have trekked through the Guatemalan jungle in search of secret springs, slept in a prisoner of war camp in  Northern Italy, and lost many impromptu soccer games to children while in Mexico. I hope to continue telling stories of human perseverance and scientific innovation throughout my journalism career.
