Alayna Hansen


A freelance science writer based in Melbourne, Australia. I've been curious about science and the natural world for as long as I've been able to talk the leg off an iron pot. If you can't find me at a zoo, observatory, or running around with a microphone, I'm probably imitating David Attenborough documentaries again.


Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
