Hey there! I'm Rasha
I'm a science journalist based in NYC
Nothing makes me happier than nerding out over science and sharing that joy with audiences. I really love stories that weave science, culture, and social justice together to challenge how we see — and exist — in the world.
I'm currently a producer for Science Friday, a weekly science radio show. I spend my weeks thinking of story ideas, chatting with scientists, and piecing together my segments. Before venturing into audio, I covered science for outlets like Smithsonian magazine, Science magazine, Science News for Students, and The Guardian.
When I'm not planning for my next story, you can find me curled up in a hammock reading a good book outside, practicing my birding skills, hiding out in Central Park, or trying (and failing) to leash train my cat, Mia.
