I'm a geochemist. In the past ten years I've fixed mass spectrometers, blasted sapphires with a laser beam, explored for uranium in a nature reserve, and measured growth patterns in fish ears, and helped design the next generation of the world's most advanced ion probe. My main interest is in-situ mass spectrometry, but I have a soft spot in my heart for thermodynamics, drillers, and cosmochemistry.
It's the longest day of the year, so I'm off to holiday on the oceanic crust for two weeks.
I hope you all have wonderful holidays, and a great new year. Here's a picture of LLLL testing the stability of our home-grown Christmas tree and $8 DIY stand:
