Before joining social science research center INCITE at Columbia University, Cadence Bambenek spent some time writing about financial technology at a startup and an even longer time fact-checking feature-length stories for publications including Discover and Popular Science on topics ranging from ecology to psychology to autism to technology to finance to archaeology to space. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Cadence also previously interned at Wisconsin State Journal, Business Insider and Psychology Today.
Calling Duluth, Minnesota her childhood home, Cadence loves pretty much anything having to do with the outdoors (particularly activities on or near water). When she's not writing, she can be found traveling, taking pictures, spending time with friends and family, or some combination of all three.
