Dora Lee - Author

Dora Lee

Dora Lee lives with her family in Vancouver, Canada. From an early age, she was interested in both science and writing. As she grew older, writing took a backseat to jobs in biotechnology research and development. Not for long, though --- science is far too fascinating to focus on just one field! She started exploring other scientific fields by writing articles for children's science publications such as YES and KNOW Mag. With her sister, Dora also started a writing business that focuses on documentation for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries.

In her spare time, Dora enjoys reading, gardening and spending time with her family. She continues to explore diverse topics in science through her writing for kids and volunteer work with the Vancouver chapter of the Canadian Association for Girls in Science.
