These days -- I'm in a role where I'm close to science, but my job isn't to be in the lab. It is, however, a VERY good idea for me to stay on the cutting edge of proteomics and metabolomics technologies and to do any small part to help these fields move forward. I only have outdoor hobbies so I spend my evenings and rainy weekends reading papers and collaborating with some of my favorite brilliant people. These efforts tends to turn into a paper or two each year, but mostly posts for these blogs.
If you'd like to reach me, the best way is to place a comment on the blog post of interest, or send me a direct email: email@example.com
If you are in the Maryland or Washington D.C. area you will probably receive a response from my, or a colleague's official work email address.
