ScienceOnline2011 – introducing the participants

As I do every year, this is a series of posts introducing attendees/participants of ScienceOnline2011. You can find them all on the list, but it may help if you get them in smaller chunks, focusing on a few at a time.

Jennifer Rohn is a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University College London. She founded and runs, she blogs at Mind the Gap and tweets as @jennyrohn. Jennifer wrote two books of fiction, both happening in a laboratory setting – Experimental Heart (which I loved) and The Honest Look which I just got in the mail and am looking forward to reading. Jenny was the 2008 editor of Open Laboratory, yet we have not met in real life yet – we will, finally, in January.
