London Presentation Update

ON Tuesday I shall be the first of 23 presenters on my Ph.D. research at the Springer-Nature, LSE and Imperial College competition:  “Falling Walls” with my presentation “Breaking the Walls of Microdesign”.

 

I am to be the first of the presenters so it should all be over for me by five past four.  The winner gets a trip to Berlin for a finale presentation.

 

The competition is fierce with presenters coming from as far afield as Harvard.  I shall be representing Bath University in spite of my checkered relationshhip with that institution.

For this reasopn this blog shall be changing over the next few days as work begins to prepare it for my presentation, getting it in order for academic scrutiny.

 

Wish me luck!

BREAKING WALLS COMPETITION

Exciting news friends!

 

My entry has just been accepted for the Springer-Nature competition on Breaking Walls of science.

 

It means I get to go to London on 1st October and record a three minute presentation for televising in the future.  Prize is a trip to Berlin.

 

Bioman Rules!

Cited in a Plant Biology Textbook

In my long protest against the University of Bath (over fourteen years gone by now) I have been arrested five times, incarcerated in a Mental health Institution a dozen times, and I have won through by being published and not only that, I have been cited in a 2018 textbook on Plant Biology for the first paper I have ever written, unsupervised and without editors. This for work the University did not recognise the importance of leading to our separation in ways. I have been put through bankruptcy. And no one could tell them that at the time I lacked insight and should have been offered respite. Instead they treat Mental Health like a weakness, something you deserve in some way. I am now off meds completely for the last six weeks and feel great. But I am protesting again, doing what I call Irresponsible e-mailing to increase the footprint of my complaint. I hope to have the police arrive at my door with a complaint from the Uni any day now. And so it continues. Anyone would say I am “John Nash” figure from “A Beautiful Mind” but I am suspicious of a set-up.
