Mr. Schramm’s diverse background includes genetic analysis and clinical trials, as well as work in the pharmaceutical and water purification industries. Currently, he focuses on writing and analysis in finance, biotech, technological innovation, energy, and geopolitics.

A resident of Estonia and a life-long science fiction enthusiast, Mr. Schramm speculates about humanity’s future as a space-faring species. His recent work explores various potential paths for a future Martian society and economy.
