Some background information on Pippa: I’m working as a writer in residence here until May 2009. During this time I’ll work on a variety of projects in the ‘Genomics and Identity Politics’ workstream, including organising a short story competition, and writing this blog.
I’ve just received an MLitt in creative writing from the University of Glasgow and have had my short stories published in several different publications.
I used to be an astronomer, and much of my writing is inspired by science. I’m writing a novel about a female astronomer, but this is not (very) autobiographical. I’ve also worked as a policy advisor for both the UK and Scottish Governments on a wide variety of issues, including the regulation of activities in outer space, and homelessness.
