EJ Baird - Poet
EJ Baird is an Australian-Canadian poet.
Born in Narrm/ Melbourne, EJ has lived and worked on both sides of the Pacific as a writer, researcher, educator and consultant to the community and public sectors. She makes her home in Adelaide, on Kaurna country.
My poetry, short stories and nonfiction work have appeared in periodicals, journals and anthologies in Australia, the US and UK.
I use the techniques of appropriation and quotation to explore the science-poetry relation. This practice responds to and reworks text from the scientific archive, exploring subject matter as diverse as marine species migration, micrometeorites and the Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn. I am also a PhD candidate in the School of Media and Communication at RMIT University, where I am researching the poetics of precision medicine and artificial intelligence.
In addition to my creative practice, I run a social impact consultancy, The Social Yield Pty Ltd.
