I am married to Spiderbaby and live in Banbury, Oxfordshire after eight years living in the USA and Sweden. I am working and training as a clinical scientist for the NHS in Oxford.

There are now over ten years of photographs on my blog! It all started with a photograph I took on the 1st of May 2004... It's been a wonderful journey, thank you all who have shared it with me, and made this blogging community one I keep coming back to!

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with Playstation-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

3d printing!

The dept recently installed a 3d printer and this week I got to use it! I designed an adapter plate for the inverted fluorescence microscope that will allow easy live imaging of cells in petri dishes without the faffing that has been necessary up to now. This design is a variant of one made by a colleague which I have changed with TinkerCAD to fit our petri dishes.

It's soooo cool!!!!

It's proven to be an incredibly useful tool for the department to have. There seems to have been a lot of pent-up demand for unique and simple plastic devices to use in our research. This custom-made part for a microscope is just one example.
