I am a husband, a father of three and a baldie who also happens to be a pretty good University Professor and Researcher. My undergraduate degree is in General Science, my MS is in Biochemistry and my PhD is in Pharmacology, with an emphasis on Neurobiology.
I love science! (do I really need to say it?)
The main topic of this blog is to talk about science, especially to non-scientists, but from time to time I explore topics like how is it like to raise a boy with autism, science fiction, education, etc. I am usually able to give these and other topics a scientific twist. I frequently blog about my favorite (non-human) types of organisms, the flatworms.
Even though I am very well published in scientific journals, I got the popular science writing bug relatively recently. My favorite science authors are Carl Sagan, Stephen Jay Gould, Edward O. Wilson, Richard Dawkins (his scientific writings) and of course, Isaac Asimov… I hope you enjoy my posts!
