Short biography
Sandra Tsing Loh is the daughter of a Chinese father and a German mother. She was raised in Malibu, California. At Santa Monica High School, she founded the performance-arts group and civic volunteer organization "Young Bureaucrats, Of Course." She also played violin in the Samohi school orchestra.
She graduated from Caltech with a BS in physics; she also is a graduate of the Master of Professional Writing Program at the University of Southern California. She has performed a number of well-received autobiographical one-woman shows, in which she developed a particular form of observational humor. Her delivery style is generally ironic and spoken somewhat quickly.
She is the host of The Loh Down on Science, a daily radio show, and is a regular commentator on NPR's Morning Edition, PRI's This American Life, and other public radio programs.

Loh is the author of several books, including the semi-autobiographical A Year in Van Nuys. She has also written reviews of books about parenting, feminism, and several other topics for The Atlantic magazine, where she has been a contributing writer for several years.
