Welcome

Hi! You’ve found Tien Nguyen’s web portfolio. She’s a freelance multimedia science reporter. She’s written scripts and stories about the physical sciences, energy, and the environment for Chemical & Engineering News, Nature, Science Careers, Freethink, VICE News, Scientific American, Mental Floss, New Scientist, TED-Ed, and ACS Reactions.

She delights in investigating strange science phenomena that arise in everyday life. She got her start in science communication through video competitions and a bygone activity called blogging while completing a PhD in organic chemistry. She began convincing people to pay her to write about science in 2014 as a Fellow for the Open Notebook, a website on the craft of science writing, and a communications specialist for Princeton University’s chemistry department. She was a staff writer at Chemical & Engineering News reporting on organic/medicinal chemistry and anything that reasonably fell within the realm of chemistry, as well as producing videos and podcasts. She’s based in DC. If you’d like to be a Tien Nguyen completist, visit her LinkedIn page. Contact her through Twitter @mustlovescience or email at tiennguyenwrites at gmail.
