McKenzie Prillaman

McKenzie is a fledgling science communicator working at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). After years of thinking she’d become a neuroscience researcher, she discovered her passion for sharing science with others. That finding, in combination with her lifelong dabbling in the arts, led her to write for the Art the Science blog. In her free time, she can be found attempting to cook, crocheting stuffed animals, wandering around thrift shops, and attending too many indie pop/rock concerts. Twitter: @meprillaman
