Noah Daly

Health, medicine

Noah Daly is a writer and reporter covering drug policy, psychedelic science, art, and medical tech innovations. His reporting can be found in The Daily Beast, Rolling Stone, Up Magazine, and Lucid News, among other publications.

Originally from New York City, Noah’s love for science was nurtured by watching MythBusters and Steve Irwin: Crocodile Hunter as a kid. After graduating from CUNY Brooklyn College, his love of journalism inspired him to get as close as possible to people telling true stories that change minds and hold truth to power, first as an intern at Foreign Affairs Magazine and then as a graduate administrative aide at New York University’s journalism school. 

At MIT, Noah will investigate the therapeutic convergences of trauma, violence, and substances that alter our states of consciousness. Outside of the classroom, Noah is an avid reader, a novice guitar strummer, a better-than-average chef, and a Purple Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Gregor Gracie.
