I work in the biotech industry (see disclaimer below) in Southern California. My background is in biology & biochem, but I blog about a wide range of stuff (usually biology/biochem-related). I do this in my spare time, which is limited, so I can’t update the blog often, but I’ll definitely try, because I think science is fun and I love sharing information.
I realize you probably all have different backgrounds, so I try to keep it simple and I’ll occasionally take time out to talk about something that for some of you might seem self-evident. It’s just being polite; if I asked you a question about a subject where I don’t know a lot (e.g. electrical engineering, the history of China, etc.), I hope you would do the same for me.
My email address is puffthemutantdragon_at_gmail.com . Just one note: if you want to comment on an article or you want me to correct something, you don’t need to email me! that’s what the Comment feature is for…
