Kayt Sukel is a science writer, tackling often taboo subjects like love, sex, neuroscience, travel and politics. Her work has appeared in the Atlantic Monthly, the New Scientist, USA Today, Pacific Standard, the Washington Post, ISLANDS, Parenting, the Bark, American Baby, National Geographic Traveler, and the AARP Bulletin.
She is a partner at the award-winning family travel website Travel Savvy Mom, and is also a frequent contributor to the Dana Foundation’s many science publications.

Her first book, This is Your Brain on Sex: The Science Behind the Search For Love is an irreverent and funny tome that takes on the age-old question, “What is love?” from a neurobiological perspective.
The Art of Risk: The New Science of Courage, Caution & Chance, an investigation into the science of risk-taking, will be published in March 2016.
