Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Okay, I guess I'd better do this thing. I'm an Englishman living in
America, and revel in the confusion my accent sometimes generates.
I genuinely like what I do (palaeontology, or the study of
long-deceased organisms) and find myself too interested in
everything to ever get really bored.
I enjoy socialising with my friends and trying out new things,
although I will freely admit to being a bit of a fish out of water
when it comes to social situations involving more than four people.
My worst habit perhaps is being a little too prone to using work as
an excuse to avoid having to interact with people whenever I have a
major project going, but generally I'm the one trying to get
everyone out for dinner.
I've just moved to New Haven for postdoctoral work, having finished
my PhD in May. I don't know many people here yet, and am slowly
exploring the town.
