The way of the chaos owl

Hello! I’m Ann 🦉

I love to study the interactions between people and technology, and I live in Cambridge, UK.

Currently for work I do systems support and agile software development for a scientific publisher. My main interests in agile at the moment are kanban, and the emergence of techniques associated with the science of complex adaptive systems.

For a long time, I was a scientific copy editor or technical editor; I still do some of this my current role, and I have a long-standing interest in use of language in written science communication.

My academic background is in physical chemistry, and for my masters and DPhil I spent five years in small dark lab building a frequency-locked laser spectrometer.

I have done and do all things because of (not despite) being dyslexic.
