About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Science
Occupation Long term Sick, Ex Researcher
Location SOUTHAMPTON, Hampshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I was a university mathematics researcher until increasing disability and illness forced me to give up my career. After seeing the erosion of the support which had enabled me to go to uni, do a PhD and hold down a good job, I turned to disability activism for a while and wrote the Spartacus Report. I continue to blog when I can and rant about dodgy lies and stats and disablism. When not being terribly serious I like games, sci-fi, fish, small furry critters and kids.
