Michele Lent Hirsch

Associate Editor


Michele Lent Hirsch draws on both science journalism and international experience to report on sexualized violence. In her previous role at Psychology Today magazine, she wrote and edited a wide range of pieces that made the latest research on behavior and the brain more accessible (and more fun). 

As a freelance writer before that, she worked by day at the global network of Soros foundations, where she helped social justice programs adhere to national and international regulations. A native New Yorker and graduate of Cornell University, she is also at work on a collection of essays. Find her on Twitter at @Lent_Hirsch.
