Carl Zimmer is a lecturer at Yale University, where he teaches science writing, and he is a visiting scholar at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. The New York Times Book Review calls Zimmer “as fine a science essayist as we have.”

He is the author of seven acclaimed books about biology and medicine, as well as hundreds of articles for The New York Times, Time, National Geographic, Scientific American, and many other publications. As a contributing editor at Discover, he writes a monthly column about neuroscience and an award-winning blog called “The Loom.”

Zimmer also hosts “Meet the Scientist,” a podcast from the American Society for Microbiology. He has served as a scientific editor for television documentaries, helped design museum exhibits, and contributed his writing to major science Web sites. In 2007, he was awarded the National Academies Science Communication Award for “his diverse and consistently interesting coverage of evolution and unexpected biology.”

This Provost’s lecture, co-sponsored by the Center for Communicating Science, will be held on Friday, February 11, at 7:30 pm in the Student Activities Center Auditorium.
