Previously, Duhaime-Ross was the first climate change correspondent in U.S. broadcast news. She reported for HBO’s VICE News Tonight, an Emmy award-winning nightly newscast, and covered the politics of climate change, life-threatening instances of environmental contamination, and the effect that global warming is already having on communities worldwide.

She was awarded the 2019 Science in Society Journalism Award, in the science features category, for a VICE News story she wrote about a community of color living in a poor, rural region of Alabama. Failing septic tanks and pools of raw sewage had increased the risk of hookworm and other infectious diseases.

She is also the recipient of the Silver 2019 AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Award in the Spot News/Feature Reporting video category for a VICE News Tonight segment about the unexpected way glaciers are melting in Greenland. 

Prior to joining VICE, Duhaime-Ross was a science reporter at Vox Media’s The Verge, where she was granted the 2015 Herb Lampert Science in Society Emerging Journalist award for her coverage of a radical 1950s scientist who suggested memory could be stored outside the brain. Duhaime-Ross has also written for Scientific American, Nature Medicine, The Atlantic, and Quartz.

Originally from Canada, she has a bachelor’s degree in zoology, a master’s degree in science, health, and environmental reporting, and a CEGEP degree in classical guitar.
