Jacqui Hayes

Jacqui Hayes was one of those kids: she collected fossils, her walls had posters of galaxies and she suffered a teen crush on the late U.S. physicist Richard Feynman. So it was no surprise when she graduated from the University of Sydney with honours in physics, and went on to complete a Graduate Diploma in Science Communication from the Australian National University in Canberra. She started at COSMOS as an intern in 2006, then returned in 2008 to take up a job as a sub-editor and staff writer, working her way up to Deputy Editor. After a stint working at CERN (the European Organisation for Nuclear Research), near Geneva, Switzerland, in 2011, she returned to COSMOS as Digital Editor.
