Overdue Update!

It's been quite some time since I updated this blog but this is a major sign that the Ph.D is being productive (a.k.a. oppressive!).

Firstly I need to give a shout-out to ScienceGrrl who continue to do amazing things, growing in numbers and getting up to all sorts around the UK! If you're a young lady interested in science, maths, the internet, computers, games, stars, technology...head over to their website to engage with real life professionals/enthusiasts. And if you're already in the industry it's also a great support network too. And if you're a cool awesome dude who wants to understand the role of women in science then you're also totally welcome.
