Contributing Writer at The New Yorker
Previous Role: Freelance Writer
MH: The New Yorker is my favorite magazine, and I’ve been reading it every week for decades, so I’m thrilled to have a more formal role here.
MH: The biggest factor leading to this transition has been my primary editor, who’s terrific. Curiosity and conscientiousness have also helped along the way in my science and technology reporting.
MH: The most challenging aspect will be covering topics outside of what I normally cover, but learning new things is why I became a science writer. One of the most rewarding aspects will be having an expanded platform to share everything I learn and write.
