Madison Brewer (she/her)
University of Pittsburgh
Physics Today Science Writing Intern
American Institute of Physics
My name is Madison Brewer, and I am a rising senior at the University of Pittsburgh pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in astronomy and non-fiction writing. As a double major, I am able to use my interdisciplinary education to tackle science and technical writing. I have worked for Carnegie Mellon University's (CMU) College of Engineering as a Writing and Communications Intern. While I write some student and alumni feature stories, my writing at CMU primarily focuses on faculty research, and four of my stories were republished on Phys.org. Before CMU, I wrote for the University of Pittsburgh’s student newspaper, The Pitt News, where I wrote about campus events and news. This fall, I will service as President of my university’s chapter of SPS. I am also Vice President of Women and Minorities in Physics at Pitt. My goal is to create a positive culture of growth and support among students in the physics and astronomy department.
