I am a scientist working in Cornwall California, no, it’s back to Cornwall. My interests are in mainly the environment, cosmology and physics (yes, groan away), but also general science, science communication, education and skepticism.
I am a chemical engineer by training, but although I am in many ways a typical engineer (in the worst ways), I am a scientist at heart. When I go to sleep at night, I sit and think about the speed of light, and ponder the distance between two points in space. My wife thinks it’s odd, but I sleep well.
I have three young children, and live in Truro, in the far south west of England.
Why do I run this site? Mostly, its a place for me to record my thoughts and theories, and to have them reviewed by others leading to their refinement.
Although I work in an industrial research lab, you won’t be surprised to hear they don’t pay me for my opinion on cosmological theories and the like. So you could say I am a closet theorist, one of many, I’m sure, and I hope to get out of the closet via this site.
So please, if you can see any flaws in my articles, I would really appreciate your comments.
