Clark Boyd

Clark Boyd covers technology and science stories for PRI’s The World. Although he is based in the Boston office, he spends quite a bit of time on the road, seeking out the latest global technology news. He tries to focus not on gadgets and gizmos, but on the people who shape, and are being shaped by, those gadgets and gizmos.

Boyd has been with The World for more than a decade. He joined the show as a researcher back in 1996, and immediately realized that radio journalism wasn't the worst possible way to make a living. After all, he did sell office furniture in Portland, Oregon, for a while. He has also managed to live and work in Scotland, Hungary and El Salvador.

Lately, Boyd has embraced podcasting as a new way to bring The World's technology coverage to a wider audience.

In 2006–2007 he was a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

He has contributed to two award-winning series for the program, one on stem cell science, and the other on the global battle against malaria.
