About Me Lisa Palmer is a metro-Washington, DC-based freelance writer and editor. I have written on everything from biotechnology and dramatic medical narratives to green tech and sustainable agribusiness for leading magazines and newspapers. Recent projects include a freelance stint as a writer and editor for the National Academy of Sciences and producing a reporting guide for journalists at the Knight Center for Specialized Journalism. In 2014 I was awarded a science communication fellowship by the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center, funded by the National Science Foundation. My work has been published in the research journal Nature Climate Change, The New York Times, The Guardian (U.K.), Scientific American, Popular Mechanics, Fortune Small Business, Entrepreneur, and many other publications. I am a graduate of Boston University and earned my master’s degree at Simmons College in Boston. Prior to my career as a writer, I was a teacher and a research analyst. I am a professional member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, the Society of Environmental Journalists, the National Association of Science Writers and the Society of American Business Editors and Writers.
