Christopher is Science Friday's senior producer, and a regular contributor to Scientific American. His favorite stories feature microbes or food — or in the best-case scenario, both. Before coming to Science Friday, Christopher taught English in Italy and counted endangered frogs (Rana muscosa) in the Eastern Sierra Nevada. He holds a bachelor's degree in biology from the University of California at Berkeley, and a master's in science, health and environmental reporting from the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at New York University.
