I’m the Real Cosima

Hi, I’m Cosima Herter.  I’m a science writer and consultant for Orphan Black. Welcome to my new blog!

I plan to use this space to expand on the deeper issues and themes of Orphan Black as new episodes air. I’m broadly interested in the ethics, philosophy, and history of biology, especially cloning, evolutionary theory, and genetic engineering.

Do you have questions about the science behind Orphan Black? I’m happy to answer them. Leave me a comment, or hit me up on Twitter here: @realcosima.
