Felyx Fayth Tan is a science writer and researcher. They earned a Ph.D. in biology from the California Institute of Technology, where they pondered 19th-century experiments in a basement a lot. A 2022 winner of the National Academy of Sciences Schmidt Award for Excellence in Science Communication, they write about science and the stories we tell ourselves about it— where the strangeness of the natural world intersects with the sociocultural zeitgeist of the day. You can find their work at their website, fxfytan.github.io
