Kevin Delin's Writings on Science, Art, and Society


Dr. Kevin Delin is a Los Angeles-based writer and scientist.  He took a few writing courses (among other things) at MIT from playwright A.R. Gurney and author Frank Conroy. He’s got a PhD in physics, written an internationally-used textbook on superconductivity, and, while at NASA, invented and patented the Sensor Web, a unique wireless sensor system suitable for Mars (and Earth).  He is also a member of the Antaeus Theatre Company Playwrights Lab.  Kevin’s numerous pieces on art and society have been published in American Theatre, LA Weekly, Script Magazine, Footlights, and Stage Raw.  His adventures include deploying his technology with firefighters in first response operations, inventing the future with venture capitalists in Silicon Valley, and solving national security issues with generals inside the Pentagon.  He’s the recipient of the prestigious NASA Exceptional Achievement Medal and, drawing from his extensive tech background, professionally advises storytellers who want to ground their work in science.  He tweets about arts, science, and technology on Twitter @kdelin and his stage plays can be found on the New Play Exchange.
