Sheila Kaplan is a prize-winning investigative reporter and television producer whose reporting focuses on the environment, public health, and the role of money in politics. Her work has appeared in The Washington Post, Discover magazine, The Nation, The New Republic, Legal Times, The Washington Monthly, and U.S. News & World Report, among other publications. She has produced investigative reports for ABC News, NBC News, MSNBC, Dan Rather Reports, and, with Bill Moyers, for the PBS series FRONTLINE. Her work has lead to six congressional hearings and changes in state and federal law.
She is now finishing a book exploring how environmental pollutants can alter the developing brain — and why the government failed to protect the public against this threat. A recent Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University, Kaplan earned a BA at the State University of New York at Buffalo and an MA in Journalism from the University of California, Berkeley.
