Darius Dixon

Darius Dixon is an energy reporter for POLITICO Pro covering Energy Department policy, nuclear power and waste, as well as the electric grid across each branch of the federal government, with a focus on regulation.

Prior to joining POLITICO in December 2010, he was a technology reporter for E&E Publishing’s ClimateWire unit and was briefly a research assistant with Wired magazine.

Interestingly enough, Dixon earned a bachelor’s degree in materials science and engineering from Carnegie Mellon, as well as master’s degrees in both materials science and geology from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, where he separately studied semiconductors and nuclear waste (and got to travel the Ring Road of Iceland). After his time in Michigan, he attended journalism school at Columbia University and earned yet another master’s degree.

Dixon lives in Alexandria, Va., with his wife and two young sons. Although he’s a New York City native, he doesn't have the accent.
