About The Rogue Scientist

Christie Hartman is a writer and scientist specializing in science-based health. A strong believer in science literacy, she enjoys explaining difficult scientific concepts to the public as well as debunking common myths about health.

Christie’s love of science began when she majored in biology as an undergraduate. She completed her PhD in behavioral genetics at the University of Colorado Boulder and subsequently worked as a scientist and professor at University of Colorado’s School of Medicine. As a scientist, she and her colleagues studied the genetic contributions to complex behavioral disorders such as substance abuse, antisocial behavior, ADHD, and learning disability.

She lives in Denver, Colorado and loves hiking (it’s her therapy), science fiction, and coffee (decaf only… you do not want to see her caffeinated).
