Benjamin David Brooks is an MSci Geology graduate of the University of Southampton, England whose main areas of academic interest are palaeontology, palaeoecology and sedimentology.
Ben is also a political commentator whose affiliation lies most naturally somewhere between the Conservative and Unionist Party and the Liberal Democrats, His main political interests being Defence, Science and Higher Education policy.
As a keen science advocate with ambitions towards getting into the “Public Understanding of Science” Ben attempts to keep this blog as impartial as possible with one major exception – the role of religion in science and politics – where his atheism often gets the better of him.
Finally Ben also enjoys the occasional aeronautical exploit outside of his studies, and until recently was training as a powered-gliding instructor.
