Eva Cornman

Biology, medicine

Eva Cornman is a writer from the suburbs of Chicago. While studying molecular and cellular biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, she realized that she preferred writing and talking about science over actually doing it. She left the University of Illinois with a bachelor’s in biology, a minor in creative writing, and a newfound passion for science writing.

After graduating, Eva spent a year managing a clinical research laboratory that studies the human gut microbiome. At MIT, Eva hopes to use her science background and clinical lab management experience to inform her writing on biology and medicine.

When she isn’t writing, Eva can often be found dancing, hiking, or hanging out with her cat.
