Welcome

Hi! You’ve found Tien Nguyen’s web portfolio. She’s a freelance science writer who covers the physical sciences (chemistry is her specialty), policy and the environment. She’s written stories and scripts for Princeton University, VICE News, Scientific American, Mentalfloss.com, New Scientist, TED-Ed and ACS Reactions.

She delights in the challenge of explaining the complex science behind everyday life. Now a reformed chemist, she first got hooked on science communication while completing a PhD in organic chemistry. In 2014, she dove into the writing world as a BWF Fellow for The Open Notebook and as a communications specialist for Princeton’s Department of Chemistry. She’s currently based in Brooklyn.
