I teach academic writing and science communication

What can I help you explain?


Ardon helps scientists talk about their work and why it matters. He teaches academic writing and science communication at Princeton. His workshops have appeared across the country at Harvard, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, and SXSWedu. He’s a fellow with the National Science Foundation and a contributing author to national recommendations for graduate education. He graduated from Oberlin College studying music theory, neuroscience, and chemistry. He holds a Ph.D. in biology from Carnegie Mellon where he studied why astronauts come back with so many health problems, and how living things sense mechanical forces like gravity.
