• Who am I?

    I am Qrystal; or at least, that's my dot-name! Har har. (My name is really Crystal, but that's not as internet-searchable; hence, switching the C for the little-used letter Q.)

    I am here because I enjoy writing. I do this mostly for myself, but I also have a passion for helping others learn things from the things I write. Now that I am done my Ph.D. in Physics, I am stepping away from academic research so that I can indulge in some creative ways to share my knowledge and inspire the appreciation of scientific thinking in others. I am also working as a tutor, which is one of the jobs I've most enjoyed doing in my life so far.

    Machines are under development that can digest plants, like we do, heal themselves and even poo.

    I’m sorry, but pooing robots is where I draw the line. Actually, robots that can design and justify a way to destroy humanity is where I draw the line, but pooing is probably a serious milestone in that quest.
