News, analysis and commentary by UBC Journalism students


Heather Amos


Heather Amos – Graduate Student, School of Journalism, University of British Columbia.

Heather grew up in Toronto, Ontario.  She attended Acadia University in Nova Scotia where she obtained a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours in Biology.

After her experience doing laboratory research for her undergraduate thesis, Heather realized she prefers to write about science and explain it rather than working in a lab.

During her time at the School of Journalism, Heather wants to use her science background to critically examine how current science and medical issues are reported in the media.

She hopes to produce science communications that are easily accessible and understandable for everyone. Heather is also excited to explore new fields and to use a variety of media outlets.
