Olive Heffernan is a science journalist who has spent the past 15 years writing about oceans and climate change. Academically, Olive is a zoologist who moved into marine science, spending the early part of her career conserving fish stocks in the North and Irish Seas, before jumping from academia and the decks of trawlers into journalism. After winning a couple of writing fellowships, Olive joined Nature magazine as an online news editor, before going on to launch the world’s most influential climate change journal, Nature Climate Change. Olive is now freelance, based in Dublin, and writes across the spectrum from Scientific American to Nature and the New Scientist. She has recently joined the faculty of Johns Hopkins University as an adjunct, where she is developing and lecturing a course on communicating climate change as part of the university’s Master’s program in Science Writing. The High Seas is her first book.
