Hi! I'm Jane.

I’m a Seattle-based magazine writer who has reported on everything from Neanderthal poop to space law. I'm a regular contributor to  Slate's Future Tense, and my work has also appeared in WIRED, High Country News, National Geographic, Smithsonian, Scientific American, Outside, and The Atlantic, as well as in The Craft of Science Writing. I also blog at The Last Word On Nothing, and teach a course on science communication at the University of Washington.

Previously, I reported on science and technology at Quartz. I was also an IWMF grantee, an Early Career Fellow at The Open Notebook, and a AAAS Mass Media Fellow.

Have a story tip to share? Organizing an event you'd like me to speak at? Giving away a bottle of 23 year old Pappy Van Winkle? I’d love to hear from you! Email me at janehu [at] nasw [dot] org, or tweet at @jane_c_hu.
