Hi, I’m Burti! I’m a researcher, writer and editor with diverse interests. I started out pursuing an academic career before getting ill with an incurable autoimmune disease. It made it impossible to keep to an inflexible schedule as my illness fluctuates wildly – and I’ve been bedridden sometimes, or even on a road trip in Australia depending on how life is treating me. My experiences prompted an interest in disability studies and I’ve been an occasional editor in this area for a while now. My great passion is travel – I want to see the world, even though my illness presents challenges.
