Welcome!

My name is Erik Olausson and I'm a freelance journalist covering science and technology news in southern Sweden. I'm fascinated by the interaction between society and the technical development and spurred by the challenge of boiling down years of advanced scientific research into a compelling and comprehensible prose. During the last year I have, for example, written about the new scent- and tastelaboratory of Copenhagen university, about Intel's new computer graphics laboratory in Lund and about how substances normally found in chilipeppers can be used to keep boats free of sea urchins.
