Since 2004, Sarah Webb has worked as a freelance journalist, writer and editor covering science, health and technology. She has also built carbon-based molecules on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean and in two languages. Most recently, for her Ph.D. at Indiana University, she assembled sugary, highly-charged spheres the size of proteins that she affectionately calls her “giant balls of negative charge.”
She’s still fascinated by atoms and molecules and the role these little cogs play in almost every field of science. But she’s also happy that she’s not cooking them up herself anymore.
Sarah lives in New York City with her husband, two cats and a Senegal parrot.
