About Sedeer el-Showk

The little one wants to know what I'm reading aboutI’m an eclectic talking ape who has always been fascinated by the world around us and deeply enamored with language in every form.  When I finally had to decide what to study, I chose science and earned a B.Sc. in plant genetics and then an M.Sc. in evolutionary biology.  My clandestine love for language never wavered, though it withered and bloomed by turns under my inconstant ministrations, like a poorly tended garden.  I hope this blog will help me amend that by bringing my two passions together, as well as giving me an opportunity to share them with you.

I divide my time between PhD research at the University of Helsinki and a collection of hobbies, including playing piano, writing poems, photography and, of course, writing this blog. I live in Helsinki with a congeries of plants and animals, including my cherished partner, a photographer.

I generally eschew social media in favour of email, but I’ve recently started using Twitter (@inspiringsci) and have a profile on LinkedIn.  In addition to Inspiring Science, I also write on Accumulating Glitches, a group blog about evolution on Nature’s Scitable network.
