Jennifer Berglund is a passionate science communicator, and ant biologist-turned deep ocean explorer.  She received a B.A. in Biology in 2007, and an M.Sc. in Science and Medical Journalism in 2010 from Boston University.  An active science journalist since 2009, her perpetual quest to tell great stories about science and nature has taken her around the globe to all seven continents, from the depths of the Amazon Rainforest, to the Dry Valleys of Antarctica, and even the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.  Her award-winning photos, films and articles have been featured both nationally and internationally in film festivals and major publications, including Discover Magazine and Scientific American.  She also works closely with world-renowned scientists and scholars at Harvard University to develop exhibits for the Harvard Museums of Science and Culture, a consortium of four museums spanning the disciplines of natural history, archaeology, anthropology, and the history of science.  In 2017, she was named a National Science Foundation STEM Media Fellow at the 2017 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival and the 2018 Science Media Awards & Summit, an honor bestowed upon emerging leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and Media professions.  For the past two years, she has worked closely with Dr. Peter Girguis of Harvard University to relay stories of science in the deep sea, and assist him with other scientific and media-related duties on his research cruises. To her, the stories of science, particularly those from the ocean’s depths, are the adventure stories of our time.  Finding new and innovative ways to tell them, she believes, plays a critical role in educating and engaging a well-informed society in today’s most pressing issues.  She resides in Somerville, Massachusetts, with her husband, Travis, and her two spoiled rotten mutts, Allie and Charlene.
