Emily Moschowits

Emily Moschowits is passionate about science writing and communication. Since publishing two articles in an online youth science publication while in high school, she has furthered her skills by attending one of the best colleges for writing in the US, Hamilton College. Recently, she has focused this passion on ophthalmology, working with authors on manuscripts and creating graphics to accompany articles published in top journals.

Before joining Oftalmolog, Emily founded a nonprofit in upstate New York, that coordinated resources for local urban gardens and helped increase nutrition education for the community. She has a diverse research background, including interning in a genetic anthropology lab where she used mtDNA to study migration patterns, studying the agroecology and climate vulnerability of coffee in Costa Rica, and various facets of dry eye disease.

Moschowits is currently studying Entrepreneurship and Innovation at BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo. She has a master’s in Agriculture, Food, & Environment from the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, Boston, MA, and a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Hamilton College, Clinton, NY.
