I’m reviving this WordPress blog to serve as my website (again). iWeb just wasn’t sticky enough, I guess. *ba dum tisk*
Here I will post news about me, should anyone be interested in following my doings. For those rather more interested in my thinkings, see my tweets and my ‘real’ if infrequent blog posts at The Beagle Project Blog, Data Not Shown, The Guardian and Scientific American.
Back to doings. To make up for lost time, here are some of the highlights since my last news post over *coughs to mask embarrassing number* years ago:
- December, 2012 – hired as staff scientist and faculty member at MDIBL
- October, 2012 – was awarded an NSF grant
- July, 2012 – made the ‘Highly Qualified’ cut in NASA astronaut selection and tweeted about it
- July, 2011 – witnessed the last launch of the space shuttle (Atlantis) and wrote about it for the Guardian
- March, 2011 – became a visiting staff scientist at the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory (MDIBL)
- February, 2010 – witnessed the last launch of Space Shuttle Discovery as part of a #NASATweetup (now under the more inclusive banner #NASASocial) and filmed it
- October, 2010 – repatriated from the UK to the USA, via the Galapagos Islands
