Popular science biologist and author
Dunn is a professor of biology at North Carolina State University. He is a rising star of popular science journalism. His writing focuses on the stories of the scientists behind the science: who they are, what they do, and how – and why – they did it. His first book, Every Living Thing was awarded the National Outdoor Book Award for Natural History writing.
His most recent book is The Wild Life of Our Bodies: Predators, Parasites, and Partners That Shape Who We Are Today. This fascinating book examines the long human relationship with other species (be they tapeworms or tigers) and how changes in those relationships are affecting our health.
