Jeff Victor

Science News Intern

A graduate student at the University of Wyoming, Jeff is interning as a science reporter with WPM through the summer of 2019. In a former life as a Laramie Boomerang reporter, he was awarded six Pacemakers for his coverage of the university and Laramie culture. In his free time, Jeff laments the loss of his left kidney, drowning that sorrow with books about science, mead made locally, and far too many podcasts. His cat, Ramona, is far more interesting.
