Eye on Carl (Zimmer, That Is)

My friend and colleague, Carl Zimmer, has some news that he is going to tell us about today at 5pm ET, so be sure to pop in to his blog at that time to see what’s happening.


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    Ooh, exciting! I reckon he’s found the Higgs Boson: “I was hoovering the sofa, and it was there behind the cushions. I managed to grab it before the IBWP ate it”.

  2. Could he be taking over from Richard Dawkins as the Simonyi Professor of the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University?

    7:20 pm EST here. I think he would have been better off just not saying what time zone he was talking about 😛
