About the Speaker
Michaeleen Doucleff (BS '98) reports for the radio and the web for NPR's global health team. She focuses on disease outbreaks, women's health and trends in global health.
In 2014, Doucleff was part of the team that earned a George Foster Peabody award for its coverage of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. In 2015, Doucleff and Senior Producer Jane Greenhalgh reported on the extreme prejudices faced by young women in Nepal when they're menstruating. Their story was the second most popular one on the NPR website in that year and contributed to the NPR series on 15-year-old girls around the world, which won two Gracie Awards.
Before coming to NPR in 2012, Doucleff was an editor at the journal Cell, where she wrote about the science behind pop culture. Doucleff has a bachelor's degree in biology from Caltech, a master's degree in viticulture and enology from the University of California, Davis and doctorate in chemistry from the University of Berkeley, California.
