Adam Hadhazy is a freelance science writer based in New Jersey. He often writes about astronomy, physics, and biology, but he enjoys delving into pretty much any topic under the Sun.
Some early highlights of his career included chatting with Neal Conan on NPR about the science of the movie Avatar, and he even got this close to William Shatner one time. More recently, for Aerospace America magazine, he explored how genetic engineering could enable humans to survive off-Earth. Meanwhile, for Discover, he chronicled the bold quest for a phantom particle that could revolutionize physics.
He covers astrophysics regularly for The Kavli Foundation and has been a contributing writer for Aerospace America and Natural History magazines.
He also writes press releases and news article for universities including Princeton, Stanford, and Johns Hopkins, along with NASA-affiliated organizations such as the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center at Caltech.
He has a master’s degree in journalism from New York University’s SCIENCE, HEALTH & ENVIRONMENTAL REPORTING PROGRAM (SHERP).
