When and what and where did you first get published? My first published piece of SF was “Good Night, Eva,” which appeared in 365 Tomorrows in 2010.
 
What themes do you like to write about? I enjoy learning about the natural sciences and philosophy, and writing is my way of learning.
 
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? The works of Greg Egan, Gene Wolfe, William Gibson, among heaps of other SF writers, but also Ballard, DeLillo, Pynchon, Nabokov, Joyce, Woolf, Borges... Books like Incandescence and Aurora and The City and the City and The Handmaid's Tale have shown me what the genre is capable of.
