Shelby Herbert is a graduate student of the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno. She’s a reporter for the Mick Hitchcock, Ph.D., Project for Visualizing Science and covers regional science news.

Shelby enjoys birdwatching, backpacking, writing poetry, baking, and doomscrolling. She is a devoted fan of Phoebe Bridgers and eastern phoebes.
