My name is Torill Kornfeldt and I live in the Southern part of Sweden. I’m a science journalist, author and speaker focusing on biology and biotechnology. My first book, The re-origin of species, was launched in Sweden in September 2016 (Mammutens återkomst). In March 2020 will my second book be published. It is called Människan i provröret (roughly translated: Test Tube Human). Besides working with this book, I am also hosting a Swedish Podcast for Swedish public service called Dystopia.
During spring 2017 my 10 programs on how science changes the world for the better (Hopp!) was broadcasted in Swedish public service (P1). I have also been writing for several of Swedens leading publishers, you can find examples of my work under publications.
I have previously worked as a journalist at the scientific editorial staff of Swedish public service and that of the newspaper Dagens Nyheter, and at Swedish public service radio.
During my few years as a scientist, I tried to persuade bumble-bees to fly in tunnels and jelly-fishes to watch movies. This made me both deeply fascinated in biology and convinced that my part was to report to others about science, instead of doing it myself. I enjoy telling about exciting animals and on how the ongoing revolution in biotechnology and gene modifications will change the world as much as that of the digital development.
