Dominic Walliman is a physicist and an award-winning science writer. He is co-creator of the Professor Astro Cat science books with illustrator Ben Newman. He also makes YouTube videos communicating science. Walliman has been writing science books since 2011, and through the adventures of Professor Astro Cat he aims to give children explanations of science that are clear and fun! He grew up reading science books and remembers vividly the excitement of discovering the mind boggling facts that science tells us about the Universe in which we live. If he can pass on this wonder and enjoyment to the next generation, he will consider it a job well done. He has a Ph.D. in quantum device physics and previously worked at the quantum computer company D-Wave.
