Documentation guy, wiki editor, Mallard evangelist, DocBook wrangler, former bug triager, occasional en_GB translator, erstwhile .desktop file meddler, and Ubuntu user (of course). My interests are in documentation, user assistance, and usability.
I graduated with a Masters' in Physics with Astrophysics from the University of Manchester, UK, in July 2010 and I'm going on to study for a DPhil (PhD) in Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Oxford, UK. I'm interested in dark energy, and will be looking at inhomogeneous (non-FRW) cosmologies which reproduce the observational effects associated with dark energy.
