Nick Lavars

Nick has been writing and editing at New Atlas since 2013 and has covered everything from distant space probes to self-driving cars to oddball animal science, and everything in between. His other experience includes time at The Santiago Times, The Conversation and Mashable, managing to earn a Masters degree along the way. When not tapping away at his desk, you might find him walking his dog or experimenting in his kitchen with very mixed results. Failing that, he’ll probably be watching sport.
