About me

I'm a forty-something Englishman living in Wales married to a Canadian, father of a delightfully happy little girl born in the pandemic. I've moved around a lot, mainly in the UK but also including 5 years in the US. Much of this was as a research scientist and I continue to work in the university sector but now supporting impactful research rather than doing it.

Why “zymotux”?

Zymo from zymurgy, the science of fermentation! Check out my #beer posts.

Tux is the name given to the Linux mascot. You can find out more about Tux on Wikipedia and more about my relationship with #Linux in this blog.
