About Joseph

As the inaugural Editing Fellow, Joseph joined the SSN in Fall 2020 to support the Communications team by editing written short-form pieces from scholars including opinion pieces, letters to the editor, policy briefs, and fact sheets. Reporting to the Associate Director of Communication, he helps academics ensure that their pieces are clear and direct, and that they are pitched at the appropriate register and structured appropriately for their target outlet. Joseph comes to the SSN with experience organizing Beyond the Ivory Tower, a workshop for popular academic writing sponsored by the Templeton Foundation, and taught by James Ryerson, a senior opinion editor at the New York Times, and supported by Lisa Feldman Barrett and Dave DeSteno at Northeastern University.
