About Joy Ma

Joy Ma is Editorial Content Manager at EurekAlert!, the non-profit science news-release distribution service operated by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Joy’s main area of focus is increasing the diversity of the content sources on EurekAlert!, especially from countries and regions with high-volume and high-quality scientific research output but relatively low levels of science communication.

Since 2015, she has helped dramatically increase the number of news releases available to science journalists through EurekAlert! from top institutions in China, Japan, and Korea by training and coaching new press officers and through strategic outreach. Before joining AAAS, she worked for NPR and the Penguin Group. She is a recipient of the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award for NPR’s coverage of the Chengdu Earthquake and winner of a Foreign Press Association Scholarship Award. Ms. Ma earned an M.A. in journalism from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
