My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

Hello there! After a good number of years following the typical post-doctoral research career path, I find myself at The Open University in Milton Keynes. I am a physicist by trade but my most recent work has encompassed a rather diverse range of areas that affect the adoption of nuclear energy. Over the last few years, I have been able to do a good amount of travelling (due to work). In the last two years, the highlights have been going to India and Luxembourg. With that said it would be nice to slow down a little bit, and I am looking for what will hopefully be a more long-term position (or at least longer than standard postdoc fayre).

I am generally quite liberal (both politically and with grammatical errors), though I am generally quite introverted in day-to-day life. With that said, I am slowly regaining control of my more social tendencies. The tendencies generally involve travel and a bit of culture, especially live music (and I need to get back into the habit of going to gigs). Due to my work, I am quite technologically minded, although I am an absolute luddite when it comes to MP3s!



I am everything, nothing, and something.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I started working at The Open University as a post-doctoral researcher in October 2013. Since completing my Ph.D. back in 2007, I have held research positions in the UK, the US and Greece. This current position is somewhat of a career change for me. My earlier Ph.D. research and post-docs involved measuring various properties of atomic nuclei and then trying to understand how these nuclei are constructed (to a certain degree it is trying to work out how an engine works by listening to its engine note). My current research is somewhat different. I am looking at how future nuclear energy systems can be insured.

This position will see me through until the end of 2014 and I am not yet sure as to what further twists and turns my meandering career path will take thereafter. I don't really know what my long-term plans are. A good part of me feels like slowing down a little bit, as frequent moving and upheaval is beginning to be rather wearisome but there shall hopefully be some good opportunities in the future.

Books: I am slowly getting back in to the habit of reading and this has been facilitated by getting a Kindle back in 2009 (before the UK version got released). My favourite genre has to be popular science and I generally prefer non-fiction to fiction. Although I have very much enjoyed The Hobbit, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Do Androids Deam of Electric Sheep. The most recent book which I have read in its entirety was Quirkology by Richard Wiseman which was a very enjoyable read. I fear though that my current reading will be very heavily work-based and full of academic texts which I hope are not too dry.

Movies: I plead absolute ignorance on this subject. I always spent my money on CDs and I haven't been to the cinema since I was 17. Instead, I enjoy documentaries, comedy and non-standard sports on TV.

Music: Simply, I have quite an eclectic taste. Some say it errs towards the 'weird' side. I would, of course, say it errs towards the 'sublime'. When I was growing up, I was mainly interested in instrumental rock. This developed towards progressive rock, which I would say is the backbone of my tastes. Mix in gothic rock, hard rock, black metal, fusion, trad. jazz and blues and the picture starts to become a little clearer. In the last year I have discovered Djent, the instrumental bands being exceptionally good.

Food: I am a fan of most cuisines. My particular favourite is Indian.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My work and how my career will progress. I have a strong belief that we shouldn't live on past glories but strive for glory in the present and future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most probably at work.

I have the benefit of being able to work reasonably flexible hours and so I am fortunate that I can avoid early morning starts. This has the knock-on effect that for most days of the week, my work overruns into evening/night. Although I am very much a creature of habit and it would be nice to have good reasons to rein in my schedule and to do a POETS!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a rather open book and I don't really shy away from privacy.

I suppose that the main thing relevant to this site is that I find dating an alien concept. Coming from a reasonably sheltered upbringing, finding a paucity of people during my University time who I clicked with and being temporarily positioned in a diverse range of countries has made the whole process difficult. Therefore, please excuse any apparent cluelessness on my behalf and put it down to "ditzy charm"!
