My name is Elia Kabanov, and I am a London-based science writer covering the past, present, and future of technology.

For over 20 years, I’ve been writing about climate change, renewable energy, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, culture, and education.

I curate two newsletters you may wish to subscribe to:

  • Hypertextual covers universities, museums, laboratories, startups, the newest discoveries, and obscure inventions.
  • Siberian explores how scientists and ordinary people cope with Russia’s faltering regime, war, and repression.

I love explaining things. That is why I have given public lectures all over the world, including in India, Bangladesh, Germany, Belarus, Uzbekistan, and Russia. I’m also a co-author and presenter on a YouTube channel on all things science with 400,000 subscribers.

My interviews and expert commentaries were featured on BBC, DW and BILD, in The New York Times, CoinDesk, Slate, Le Monde, 7×7, The Calvert Journal, Animal, MDR, Delfi, El Diario, Lifehacker, and in other outlets.
