I am a science and fiction writer based in Western Canada, where I also work as a physician-researcher.

My scientific writing (and research) focuses on strategies to improve health care delivery, and on the role of nutrition in preventing chronic disease. You can find a list of my academic publications (as EO Billington) here.

My first novel, MATH & OTHER PROBLEMS, follows the booksmart but socially awkward Ellie Kent as she navigates science, sex, and societal norms during her freshman year of college. I am currently at work on a second novel, ONLY OKAY, about a gastroenterologist who doesn’t trust her gut.
