Flora Lichtman has been covering science and the environment for the last decade. Her science reporting — radio, video and writing — has appeared on NPR, in The New York Times, Popular Science, The Atlantic and in a number of film festivals. She is the co-director New York Times Op-Docs series “Animated Life” — short films on pivotal scientific discoveries, animated with paper puppets. Prior to The Adaptors, Flora was the managing editor of video and substitute host for Science Friday, a two-hour live public radio show. She is co-author of Annoying: The Science of What Bugs Us. Before getting into journalism, she worked at a NATO lab, studying marine mammals in the Mediterranean. (A good gig.) Say hi on Twitter or email.
