Greg Boustead

Director, Science Sandbox &
Executive Producer, Sandbox Films

With a multidisciplinary career in science communication, Greg Boustead has brought sophisticated science content to broad audiences, across many platforms. He believes in the power of storytelling to help make science relevant to more people. In 2015, he helped launch Science Sandbox, a Simons Foundation initiative dedicated to inspiring a deeper interest in science, especially among those who don’t think of themselves as science enthusiasts. As director, Boustead oversees the initiative’s strategy and funding decisions. He also leads the group’s documentary film studio, Sandbox Films, as executive producer. Before joining the foundation, Boustead was editorial producer for the World Science Festival and senior editor of the science/culture magazine SEED.
