Chenoa van den Boogaard has a B.Sc. from the University of British Columbia, majoring in astronomy and minoring in English literature.
She has previously worked as an engineering physics teaching assistant and as a UBC research intern. It was near the end of her undergrad degree that she decided to combine her scientific background with her love for writing to pursue a career in science communications. Chenoa is passionate about making science accessible to the general public by bridging the information gap between the science community and the rest of the world.
She started writing about physics and astronomy for Science Borealis in March 2020. Although astronomy remains her favourite topic, she also loves to explore the science of our home planet, especially if her research involves getting outside and exploring the natural world firsthand.
When she’s not writing or talking about science, Chenoa can usually be found in a pottery studio, playing soccer, or trying out a new board game.
