Ed Yong, staff science writer at The Atlantic has taken a sabbatical. Yong tweets:
“I’m taking a 6-month sabbatical, starting now. These past 3 years have been the most professionally meaningful of my life, but they’ve also deeply broken me. The pandemic isn’t over, but after a long time spent staring into the sun, I need to blink.”
He worked freelance for Nature, the BBC, New Scientist, Wired UK, the Guardian, the Times, Discover, The Scientist, the BMJ, CNN, Slate, the Daily Telegraph and the Economist.
Yong has a M.A. from the University of Cambridge and an MPhil from UCL.
