Hi! Call me Lily. I have lived in nine countries and travelled to over seventy, mostly as a solo backpacker. I currently divide my time between Sweden and Pakistan, and I'm working on a literary thriller, about the one-child policy's impact on rural and urban Chinese. It's my goal to bridge people around the world by telling stories from different cultures.

I am represented by Hayley Steed of the Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV & Film Agency.

In 2019, I completed my PhD in theoretical physics from Harvard. My thesis, Analytical Steps Towards the Observation of High-Spin Black Holes, was written under the supervision of Prof. Andy Strominger. Here is the video of my defense.
