Yen-Rong is a Brisbanite who is currently attempting to write an Honours thesis. She has a keen interest in science communication, which will probably please her parents somewhat as they weren’t too pleased with her transition from ‘aspiring scientist’ to ‘aspiring English literature academic’. She has written for Semper Floreat and Rambutan Literary, and spends an inordinate amount of time making sure her cat doesn’t totally ruin her couch. You can find her on Twitter @inexorablist.
