I wrote an article about paper clothes

Hello! Starting from today I’ll be co-managing (writing/editing/ Ctrl+c-ing stuff from the internet) this blog with the other PhD student in my lab, Saskia! WELCOME SASKIA. She is studying something very different from my research, so please look forward to her posts for a bit of a different flavour.

Part of my PhD research is about paper making, and paper clothing.

I co-wrote an article with Cameron Allan Mckean about a place called Shiroishi, near Fukushima, where paper clothing has a history of dying and being brought back to life. Please read it here.
