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 , 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.
