Nienke Beintema is an experienced, energetic and dedicated science writer and editor. She combines her own curiosity with strong analytical skills to make science understandable, interesting and relevant to non-scientists. Writing, editing, presenting, interviewing - she enjoys all of these things, hoping to make others as enthusiastic about science as she is.
Biologist by nature and by training, Nienke is passionate about nature and the environment, science and outdoor adventures. She is happiest when accompanying scientists in their workplace to catch their knowledge, ideas and energy and transfer those to others.

Don't hesitate to contact Nienke if you need:

  • a background article, interview, news release 
  • a conference report or expedition log
  • a symposium chair, presenter or interviewer



In May 2015, Nienke published a book (in Dutch) about the Arctic and Antarctic. It got great reviews in the national press, won a science writing award, and was reprinted within two months. Click here to order -- or email Nienke!
