Hi, I’m Steven Hamblin.  Here’s a short introduction: I’m a postdoctoral research associate in the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences at the University of New South Wales, currently working on viral and bacterial evolution.  I did my Ph. D.  in Biology at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), studying social foraging behaviours using computational and mathematical modeling (see my website for more on what I do).  This blog features material from my work and my thoughts on the scientific life:  evolutionary biology, behavioural ecology, mathematical and computational modelling, stats, scientific design and presentation, and more.  Join me as I scramble up the ladder of my chosen career;  your comments and questions are welcome!

If you’ve come to this blog looking for content from A Bit of Behavioural Ecology, take heart;  this is the same blog under a different name.  The blog and my work had outgrown the previous title, and so in December of 2013 I rebooted the blog with a new look and a new name.

Note:  The content of this blog reflects my opinion, and my opinion alone, not that of UNSW or any of its members.
