Em X. Liu is a writer and recent biochemistry graduate, which means she is fascinated by stories of artificial intelligence and Shakespeare in equal measure. Her work takes inspiration from a myriad of sources, from her current studies in medical school to the latest releases from her favourite K-pop idols. She is chronically cold-blooded but nonetheless resides in Ontario, Canada.
