Jennifer Kahn has been a contributing editor at Wired magazine since 2003, and a feature writer for The New Yorker, National Geographic, Outside, Mother Jones, and the New York Times, among others. Her work has been selected for the Best American Science Writing series four times in the past seven years. A graduate of Princeton University and UC Berkeley, she has degrees in astrophysics and journalism. Since 2008, she has taught in the Magazine Program at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.

Kahn is a member of the panel, Covering Scientific Controversies, that will take place Saturday, October 15th, from 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm at the Wettaw Auditorium at the University of Northern Arizona. The panel is part of the annual National Association of Science Writers meeting.

I spoke with Kahn about her  New Yorker piece, “A Cloud of Smoke,” about a policeman whose death four years after 9/11 was not what it seemed.
