About Lee Falin, PhD

Baffled by biology? Confused by chemistry? Phrightened by physics?

You’ll never fear science again with Everyday Einstein on your side!

Ever wonder how radiation works? Why do praying mantises eat their mates? Is an asteroid collision with Earth really possible? Do acai berries cure cancer?

While evil-doers may try to use fear and sophistry to enslave you, Everyday Einstein uses the power of pure science (with a touch of humor) to reveal the truth behind the world around us. You’ll dazzle your friends, impress your coworkers, and maybe even save the world with the information you glean from his Quick and Dirty Tips to understanding the mysteries of science that you encounter every day.

Dr. Lee Falin worked for many years as a software developer in the telecommunications and defense industries before falling in love with writing and education. He earned a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois, then went on to obtain a Ph.D. in Genetics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology from Virginia Tech. While there, he suffered a freak gamma-radiation accident that turned him into Everyday Einstein.

Dr. Falin is the author of the Science Fictioned series, in which he takes scientific research articles and turns them into sci-fi and fantasy short stories. When not saving the world from evil, Dr. Falin leads a quiet life disguised as a Bioinformatician at the European Bioinformatics Institute. He currently lives in the UK with his amazing wife and 5 crazy kids.
