Chris Carroll came to the University of Maryland in 2015 to write mostly about science, and a little about everything else. In nearly 20 years as a journalist, he was a staff writer at Stars and Stripes, National Geographic Magazine, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and others. The University of Missouri School of Journalism graduate has reported from about 30 countries, but only 16 or 17 U.S. states.
