Class of 2013
Trent Knoss grew up just outside Minneapolis and studied English Literature at Boston University. He has worked at the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center (learning very curious things about very famous people), the Random House editorial department down under in Sydney (searching the slush pile for the next Great Australian Novel), and most recently, The Perseus Books Group, where he secured non-fiction excerpts in high-profile national magazines.
After years of reading science writing and enthusiastically discussing it with anyone who would listen, Trent realized that this was the perfect way to combine his love of a good narrative with his fascination about the way the world works. He is thrilled to join the creative community at MIT and report on the life sciences (ecology, evolutionary biology, and zoology in particular). He volunteers at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, travels as often as he can get away with, seeks out obscure foreign films on purpose, and can be found running long distances along the Charles River in all weather, all seasons.
