meiotic   of or pertaining to meiosis,   both a scientific process (4-daughter cell division) as well as a literary device (to belittle with witty understatement). And hey, I like science and understated witty belittlement in equal measure (..also, there’s a more famous Phil Taylor to contend with).

I frequently communicate my science at conferences, workshops and user group meetings. Recent topics have included the UK Lakes Portal, developing apps for algal bloom detection, adapting the whisky industry to climate change, and updating 100-year-old loch bathymetry data (see below). Feel free to get in touch if you’re interested in me speaking at your event, or any of my other scientific research:   talks@meiotic.co.uk
