    New here. Thought I'd say hello. I'm a professional scientist, killing time. No idea if I'll stop by again, or not, but you seem to run a clean ship.

    Cheers!

    Welcome. What line of science are you in?

    I've dabbled in a few areas of molecular biology. Currently I'm in a geobiology lab. Wonderful merger of two disciplines, learning how microorganisms affect the geology of the planet. I'm developing methods to identify methane consuming bacteria in environmental samples.

    And yourself?

    Working in oil exploration as a training manager, with a background in geology. (A very distant background. I graduated during the late Eocene. :wink: )
    Geobiology - very interesting. I believe the better (perhaps the best) ideas come from research where areas of expertise overlap. I think the impact of life on the geology of the planet has been largely underestimated, though this seems to be changing.

    welcome, interesting field by the way,

    a joke my mate made last year described his view on career aspects after a degree in either geology or physics (not really, but made a good joke)

    geology rocks, sure enough but biology sells.

    you seem to have a mix of both.

    Stumble on through life.
    Feel free to correct any false information, which unknown to me, may be included in my posts. (also - let this be a disclaimer)

    Ta for those!

    It's fabulous fun, and I'm delighted to have fallen into the field. I've always enjoyed playing in the dirt and now I'm paid to do so.
