Welcome to The Distillery, an online interview series hosted by Lee Shang Lun. Each half-hour episode is a livestreamed conversation that concentrates on the subject's unique perspective and expertise. The aim is to draw out simple ideas from deep discussion.
Clarissa Ai Ling Lee is an art-science creator, science and technology studies scholar, and sustainability policy wonk residing in Malaysia. In her sparse free time, she likes to play tabletop games, read on non-work related topics, learn about the latest technology, find the most horrifying horror to watch, and think about drawing and gardening (with the aspiration of actually starting on them just as she is writing this out in the bio). She is an expert at bringing together different strands of incoherent ideas, much to the chagrin of those around her.
