I'm an ex-pat Englishman, living and working in San Francisco since November 2009. Before that I lived and worked in Paris and Mechelen, in Belgium, between May and October 2009, and in Copenhagen, Denmark, between January 2001 and April 2009. I work in what is called life sciences IT, a shadowy discipline that sits on the fence between the life sciences (medical devices, biotech and pharmaceutical research), and IT. I've done bioinformatics work, but I'm not a bioinformaticist. Likewise with cheminformatics. I understand clinical data management systems, and laboratory information management systems. I've worked with chemists, biologists and clinical researchers. In short, I'm a mongrel. Which suits me fine.
I used to maintain a blog over at www.daen.dk, which has now been deprecated in favour of this shiny new website (partly because the Danish hosting company kept breaking my Moveable Type functionality), which I intend to explore in all sorts of interesting directions. However, I'm going to keep the old blog as an archive. It is, after all, nine years old as of January 2012, and deserves to be left in peace, if not in pieces.
