Hi there! I'm Aatish.

By day, I'm an associate director of engineering education at Princeton University's Council on Science and Technology. By night, I write about science at WIRED and Nautilus. I'm constantly scheming up ways to get more people to experience the wonder, joy, and excitement of finding things out.

I have a Ph.D. in physics from Rutgers University, and a B.A. in physics from Swarthmore College. I'm an avid backpacker and white-water kayaker. I've been peed on by a proboscis monkey in Borneo.

The best way to get in touch with me is by twitter, and the second best way is by email.

The cover page of this site is from a set of long exposure pictures of fireflies I took last summer. Fireflies are the coolest.
