MADISON DAPCEVICH

Raised on an island in southeast Alaska, Madison is a master of environmental science and a perpetually curious tidepool explorer. Her experiences have brought her to San Francisco, where she now spends her time writing, reading, and critically (read: obsessively) thinking about all things science as a full-time writer for IFLScience. She spent a few years working on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. before reporting throughout the Rocky Mountains – before that she was once a deckhand on an Alaskan commercial fishing vessel, but that’s a story for another day. When not plucking away on a computer keyboard, Madison is either traversing through the backcountry on epic explorations with her border collie, Ruka, or teaching people to get bendy in the yoga studio.

 

Although Madison most enjoys reporting on policy, climate, environmental and marine science, she's been known to cover everything from bizarre medical marvels to the wackiest archaeological discoveries and tending pop-sci stories to space-bound explorations. She holds an MA in Environmental Science and Natural Resource Journalism, as well as a graduate certificate in Natural Resource Conflict Resolution, from the  University of Montana in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Her undergraduate work brought her to the Redwood Forest in Northern California, where she received a BA in both Journalism and International Resources. She also speaks rusty French with a West African accent, but that's another story for a different day.
