Science Correspondent, The Guardian

Leaving academia for journalism, sexism in science, podcasting… and departing The Times for The Guardian

13th April 2017

Hannah Devlin is the Guardian’s Science Correspondent, and presenter of their science podcast. In this in-depth interview, she explains why she chose journalism over academic biomedicine; talks frankly about sexism in science; discusses her move from Science Editor at The Times, the differences of writing without a paywall, and her view that social media has fundamentally changed journalism; reveals the slate of groundbreaking research she’s currently reporting on; and explains why – as the evidence apparently shows – that two G&Ts is the “scientifically perfect” amount.
