Anna Kaziunas France

Editor, Make: Books

She's very interested in your ideas for practical digital fabrication focused books (anything that turns codes into things), as well as your adventures in synthetic biology, biohacking, personal genomics and programmable materials.

She’s also the Dean of the global Fab Academy program, the co-author of Getting Started with MakerBot, compiled the Make: 3D Printing book and ran Make:'s 2015 and 2014 3D Printer Shootout Weekend testing events.

She likes things that are computer-controlled, parametric, and open source — preferably all three.

Find her on her personal site, Twitter, , and Facebook.
