I may have been a little asleep at the wheel here. Blame it on the tryptophan (or not.) This edition of the Scientopia Guestblog will be hosted by me, Bashir. I have been blogging for a year or so here. My topics include science tidbits, professional musings and occasional remarks on under-representation in science (leaky pipelines and all that). I’ll try to do a little of each here.
Just to let you know who I am, I'm a postdoc in some magnificent area of science. I stand out a bit, if only because of my demographics, I’m an African-American male. The numbers for that group are quite low and get lower as you climb the science ziggurat. Take a look at the departmental webpages for your university, or look around at the next conference you’re at. That’s part of the reason I started the blog, just to be out there and visible.
