Megan Molteni, Wired Magazine

As WIRED's resident biotechnology reporter, Molteni spends most of her time examining emerging innovations and thinking to herself, "Now, how could that go wrong?" From designer babies to self-destructing swarms of mosquitoes to pigs-turned-human organ farms, today's molecular tools open up a vast range of possible futures. Molteni's job is to inhabit them before they happen, helping people make sense of the society-shaking changes that are coming. She'll share the winding path she took to WIRED, what she'd do differently next time, and what it's like to cover science and technology during a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic.
