Welcome. I write about science, society, and how they intersect through us (which sounds painful, I know).

I've written books about genitalia 🍆, brains 🧠 🧠, biology 🧬, and parenting 👥, all of which are strangely related despite the apparent distinctions. You can find my writing at Scientific American, where I am a regular contributor, and other delightful places about the web.

You also can find me right here on my blog, sometimes at Bluesky, and less often on Instagram (@emily.willingham.phd). That PhD is in biology, but the unseen hero at work here is really my bachelor's degree in English.
