Welcome!

Steph Yin is a science writer, illustrator and animator. She started this blog, INK-CHROMA, in 2011. Its title refers to ink chromatography, a technique for separating out different colored dyes in an ink mixture. Just as ink chromatography expands ink mixtures into streaked bands of colors, I choose science stories and extract bands of knowledge from them. The result will hopefully be a blend as rich and colorful as that created by ink chromatography.
