Robin at home in Santa Cruz







Robin Krieger Mejia


I write for the Washington Post Magazine, Science, Mother Jones and other outlets, mostly about how science and technology are changing the way we live.  In 2005, I reported and co-produced a documentary for CNN that won the 2005 Livingston Award for Young Journalists and was part of a package that won CNN an International Documentary Association Award. One of my more recent stories is featured in Best of Technology Writing 2008. 

Before I became a journalist, I studied biology, earning a bachelor's from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 1997. I spent some time doing research on a Costa Rican farm, and, for a while, I thought I wanted to be a soil scientist. But it turns out I'm better with words than pipettes.
