Sergio Pistoi started his career as a molecular biologist. Soon after he finished his Ph.D. in 1994, a radiation incident in his lab turned him into an evil science-writing superhero. He was an intern at Scientific American in New York and a stringer for Reuters Health. His credits include Scientific American, New Scientist, Nature and many Italian print and radio outlets. He is also a consultant for research planning and portfolio management. He is a member of the National Association of Science Writers, NASW and the European Union of Science Writer’s Associations. He hides in Tuscany, Italy, with a fake identity. He can be found at www.greedybrain.com.
