Well, what to say?  I’ve got a varied background in things like genetics, microbiology, a bit of neuroscience (molecular), business, marketing/branding and, most recently science communication and web. I’ve a short attention span, endless interest in the world around me, and an ability to enthuse, all of which help me bore (or entertain, depending on your perspective) people to death at dinner parties.

In addition to my day job, I’m admin/deputy editor/co-founder of Sciblogs, cofounder and former co-host of The Official Sciblogs Podcast (, the only Southern Hemisphere nerd nite boss (, and am learning to play the banjo.  Plus some other stuff :)

Also, in July 2012, I’m doing the Mongol Rally, as half of Lemur Attack Force – it’s one of the madder charity events out there, and any donations would be welcome :)

Of course, it need not be said (but I shall anyway) that anything written on this blog is my view, _not_ the view of my employers or, in fact, of any organisation with which I am involved.

Also worth mentioning – when I first started blogging, Sciblogs hadn’t yet begun, so some of my original writings can be found on my original blog site, here.

Oh yeah, and you can follow me (on Twitter, at least) at @teh_aimee
