What academic writing project(s) are you working on at the moment?

I've published a few papers regarding origins of life and a testable theory of living dynamic systems. I have the technical guts for a book, but haven't found my writing voice, my audience, or discipline.

What's your institutional affiliation (if applicable)?

I work with Terrance Deacon, professor at UC Berk, on his origins of life work. We co-wrote one paper on this topic last year, which is still in review.

What would you like to get out of the meetup?

1. Better writing discipline 2. Learn from others' experience 3. Find my audience: academic, general, both? 4. Find my voice, which is intrinsically related to item 3 above.


My design practice cross fertilized with my science education to manifest a new approach to cognition and living dynamic systems over the last decade. I finished a testable theory of synthetic cognition in the last two years. Next steps?
