I am a husband, a father of three and a baldie who also happens to be a pretty good (I hope) 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?)
In this blog, I mainly 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!
The opinions expressed in this blog are mine alone. They do not represent the views of my employer, my wife, my children, my parents & siblings, my pastor or Chuck Darwin…
Want to see more of the things I write? Go here for some other posts. By the way, I wrote a book!
TFB is available as an ebook (Kindle, Nook, as well as in iTunes). The price of the Kindle version was just reduced by Amazon… (:-)
This is a popular science book, which I hope to be enjoyed by laypeople and biologists alike.
I also wrote a science fiction story with an autism theme. I published it in two languages, check them out!
