As a judge who helped select the 2013 Royal Society Young People's Book Prize shortlist, I also have a deep passion for good books, especially good science books, which I review with some regularity. I am a former member of the ScienceBlogs (now defunct) community and a former guest writer for BirdingBlogs (now defunct).
Social progressive, politically liberal, lacking the credulity necessary to believe in invisible or supernatural life forms, in the benevolence of large corporations or in the humanity of humans. I am a Ravenclaw.
NOTE: I rarely respond to people on G+; twitter and email are more than enough to keep me busy!
