Bio

Yudhanjaya Wijeratne is a Sri Lankan science fiction author, data scientist and TEDx speaker, best known for Numbercaste and The Inhuman Race. By day he works at the intersection of near-future prediction, emerging tech and government policy, and by night he tries to get his cat to follow orders. He’s run news operations, almost been shot at too many times, and fallen off cliffs, but most of these things have been entirely by accident. He has a five-book deal with HarperCollins, and is the first Sri Lankan to be nominated for the Nebula Award.
