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