About me

I’m a scientist and science fiction writer. I like a lot of things: kittens, strawberries, bubble baths and whimsy.  Oh, and jazz standards. I’ve loved Billie Holliday for many years, but only in the past two years or so I’ve discovered how much I like crooners like Frank Sinatra and Seth MacFarlane (I prefer the latter since he is still visible to audiences at shows).

I work as a researcher full-time, and in addition to writing fiction in my spare time, I conduct small research projects and write science articles for The Conversation.
