Welcome to Jamie Foster Science, your source for breaking down complex science into engaging, enlightening articles. We aim to satisfy curiosity and illuminate the endless wonders of the natural world.

Our blog was founded in 2020 by Jamie Foster, PhD. Jamie completed her doctorate in physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with a focus on quantum mechanics and nanotechnology. Her graduate research resulted in multiple publications in leading scientific journals like Nature, Science, and Physical Review Letters. After graduating, Jamie saw a need for high-quality science communication that makes cutting-edge concepts accessible to non-experts. She created Jamie Foster Science to translate her love of science into content that informs and inspires.
