Elizabeth Gamillo

Natural history, public health, space, and sustainability

Elizabeth Gamillo’s interest in science communication began shortly after she wrote for the Milwaukee Area Science Advocates (MASA), a local science advocacy group that formed shortly after the March for Science movement of 2017. 

Prior to coming to MIT, she was a daily correspondent for Smithsonian Magazine and was an AAAS Diverse Voices in Science Journalism Intern at Science Magazine in 2018. Before that, she completed science and conservation communications internships at the Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee and the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois. She holds a bachelor’s degree in biology with a minor in creative writing from Alverno College. 

Elizabeth is currently a staff writer at Astronomy and Discover magazines.
