I’m a scientist and amateur fiction writer.
I work as a researcher part-time at the moment, though most of my career I have worked full time. In addition to writing fiction in my spare time, I conduct small research projects that I crowdfund or work on with my personal funds. I’m hoping to work on a number of projects which will start small but if they show promise, should have a big impact.

I am also bipolar, and so it’s hard for me to consistently sustain productivity. I talk openly about what I experience in my various blogs.
