Hello! How are you doing? That’s a great shirt you’ve got on!
My name is Matthew Hartfield and I am a PhD student in evolutionary biology at the University of Edinburgh, researching models and simulation of genetic recombination. (Or “The evolution of sex”, if I wanted to sound more exciting.) I have a first-class degree in mathematics from Imperial College London and also hold a Masters degree from the University of Bath.
This blog will hopfully act as a means to explain my research to the wider world instead of keeping it inside academe, and also explain why science is so important to modern society, and explore what has been termed “The science of politics and the politics of science”.
I can be contacted by emailing stochasticman85 AT googlemail DOT com.
