Greg Boustead

For over 15 years, Greg Boustead has brought sophisticated science content to broad audiences across many platforms — including writing, video and live events. He joined the Simons Foundation in 2012 as community manager for Spectrum. In 2015, he moved to the foundation’s Education & Outreach division, where he helped launch Science Sandbox, an initiative dedicated to inspiring a deeper interest in science, especially among those who don’t think of themselves as science enthusiasts. Before joining the foundation, he was editorial producer for the World Science Festival, producing their live science events and overseeing editorial for the organization’s website. Previously, Boustead was senior editor of the science and culture magazine Seed, and he has contributed as a freelancer to Vice, Motherboard and Scientific American. He was an editor for the Journal of Cell Biology and the Journal of Experimental Medicine from 2001 to 2008. He has a B.S. in psychology and a B.A. in English from the University of Florida.
