Irina Rempt is a human who immerses herself in approximately 693750 liters of slightly adulterated dihydrogen monoxide several times a week. This vastly improves her thinking process. She mostly avoids showing up in pictures, but this one actually looks like her own idea of herself. When not busy with writing-related things she edits and translates what other people write, cooks, bakes bread, does secretary work for an open-source project, makes websites, sings first alto in the church choir and reads a lot. She is happily married to a fellow nerd and they have three daughters, all graduate students.
