With 10 years’ experience in environmental science and communications, Alisa has written for CSIRO, Hort Journal Australia, The Conversation, Journal of Water Science and Technology, and ReNew Magazine.
She was born and raised in Sydney with her two brothers and one slightly mad border collie. She graduated from the University of Sydney as a soil scientist. After a few years of pretending to be a serious professional consultant, Alisa studied at Cambridge University, completing a triple Master of geography, cycling on cobblestones, and looking like an extra from a Harry Potter movie.
When not writing, Alisa enjoys playing the piano, patting dogs, and browsing foreign supermarkets.
