    Biography

    I grew up in a family of Russian scientists, listening to bedtime stories about volcanoes and black holes. Now I write my own stories, which have appeared in Scientific American, Narratively, Hemispheres, Psychology Today, Digital Trends, Modern Farmer and other publications. I edit science features at the Nautilus magazine and write about traveling off the beaten path and discovering new food forms along the way. My most recent traveling foodie feat was drinking a poisonous snake in Peru. I am working on a book about unlikely cures for diseases that resist modern medicine, and am endlessly fascinated by poisons, parasites and poop. Follow my misadventures @LinaZeldovich
