Award-winning journalist, 
presenter, and multimedia producer

Hey! I'm Anna.

I am a science presenter, video producer, and journalist. Currently, I'm the on-air science host for The Washington Post, where I report on everything from biology to astrophysics. I launched The Post's family-friendly variety show “Science Magic Show Hooray!” which you can watch on Amazon Prime. I am also the creator, host, and animator of the popular YouTube channel “Gross Science” for NOVA and PBS Digital Studios. The series has close to 300,000 subscribers, and is shown in classrooms and museums around the globe.
