Caitlin McShea

Manager, Miller Omega Programs - InterPlanetary Project Director, Community Outreach

Caitlin McShea is Director of the Santa Fe Institute’s InterPlanetary Project, host of the Alien Crash Site podcast, editor (along with SFI President David Krakauer) of the InterPlanetary Transmissions Volumes, published by the SFI Press, and one half of the space-musing duo Atlantis. She studied evolutionary biology at Southwestern University, and earned a Masters in Liberal Arts from St. John’s College. She worked in Contemporary Arts for six years, before joining SFI.

She is enamored by creativity: its inevitability, its irrepressibility, and, most curiously, its origin. When she’s not thinking about creativity, she is employing it – usually in the kitchen. When she’s not cooking, she's likely to be found sitting at the copper bar of the Shed, or curled up on the couch with her beautiful dog, Sullivan, re-reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude.
