Jane Hu

Jane Hu is an American independent journalist reporting on stories at the intersection of science, gender, and society. She was selected as a 2014 AAAS Mass Media Fellow and 2016 Open Notebook Early Career Fellow, and her work has appeared in publications like Slate, the Atlantic, Outside, Science, and NBC News, among others. The IWMF has funded Hu’s project on the outcomes of the Euro-Arabian North Pole Expedition, an expedition of 11 European and Middle Eastern women who plan to ski to the North Pole. The expedition seeks to shatter gender and racial stereotypes, and to collect much-needed data on how women’s bodies adapt to extreme environments.
