I am an Irishman currently living in Switzerland. By profession I am a Marie Curie Research Fellow in the field of organometallic chemistry and I have wide interests in terms of travel, music, language, science and current affairs. I am part cynic, part idealist and love a good argument.

This website features my musings on Switzerland, my activities as a chemist, and links to my exciting project 80 Days: an exploration podcast.
