Tegan Taylor

Tegan Taylor is co-host of the ABC’s Coronacast and a health and science journalist in the ABC Science Unit, where she reports on topics from health fads to moonquakes and, yes, coronavirus.

She is passionate about communicating health and science concepts clearly to a lay audience, because she believes if you can understand science, you can’t help but be enthralled by it. She’s been known to pop up on ABC Radio National’s Health Report and Life Matters, Triple J and in the Best of Australian Science Writing.

Tegan was previously a producer on the ABC’s national digital newsdesk, a journalism lecturer at The University of Queensland and, long ago, a newspaper reporter.
