About me

HSTI was born and educated in Wales and, after a career in scientific research, I’m now emeritus Professor of Biology at Aberystwyth University. This allows me to carry on with all the nice parts of the old job (writing, research, hanging round with other scientists, drinking too much coffee), and means that I’ve been able lately to indulge a special interest in the science-humanities connection. I’ve also led a parallel life as a devout jazz musician.
