Name:gnommi
Birthdate:Nov 26
Location:United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Having just (successfully) finished Digby The Slowest PhD in The World characterizing pancreatic stem cells over 5 years of dividing her time somewhat successfully between Southampton and London, Gnom can generally be found debating something trivial or technical in some bar or other, wading through variously revolting and fascinating surgical specimens in the wilds of the path lab, spectating in a club somewhere not-too-wholesome, not-too-sleazy, sporting some ludicrous outfit or other, drawing preposterous insects or aggroing mobs somewhere in the dark recesses of Argent Dawn. Her life is nowhere near as interesting as it appears, and someday soon she might actually find the time to grow up. Names will not be changed to protect the innocent, on the grounds that she hasn't seen any yet.

I now have an Etsy shop in an effort to spread the beetle love around!
