Bridie Smith is The Age’s science editor.
Since starting at The Age as a trainee in 2003, Bridie has covered the general news, consumer affairs and education rounds. She is also a regular reviewer for the annual Good Food Guide and serves as a locum news editor on the newsdesk. In 2008 she moved to science – and a whole new world opened up. A Monash University arts graduate with honours in history, science had always seemed daunting. But the diverse nature of the field combined with the challenge of explaining sometimes complex concepts and the relevance to readers’ lives has proved immensely satisfying. At five years and counting, this is the longest time she has been in a round.
