Introducing Meg Rosenburg

Dr. Meg Rosenburg is a freelance science communicator, content producer, and independent scholar based in the Boston area.  In 2014, she earned her Ph.D. from Caltech in Planetary Science, with an extra focus in the history of science, and she’s especially interested in impact craters on the Moon and Earth, their contribution to planetary topography, and how they have been interpreted over the centuries.  While in grad school, she produced The PHD Movie with web comic artist Jorge Cham, an opportunity that opened her eyes to the world of science communication. Since then, she’s created award-winning animated science videos and collaborated with numerous academic researchers and science communicators to convey complex subjects to the public.  In particular, she sees science, history, and digital media as an especially rich combination, and is pursuing several projects along these lines while carving out time for her research into the history of planetary studies.  She tweets @trueanomalies and blogs occasionally at, and examples of her work can be found on her website (
