Miriam Fauzia

Miriam Fauzia is a mind and body writer at Inverse reporting on health, science, and the occasional innovation.

Prior to Inverse, she was an innovation reporter at The Daily Beast and a fact check reporter at USA Today. She holds two master’s degrees, one in journalism from Boston University and another in immunology from the University of Oxford. She will soon add a third in biochemistry and molecular biology from Georgetown University, which she’s currently pursuing.

When not studying or reporting, Miriam is voraciously consuming all the sci-fi/fantasy lit she can get her hands on, and writing her own magnum opus on the side.
