George Watson

# Computational biophysics PhD student

I'm George Watson, a student from the United Kingdom studying for an MPhys degree in Theoretical Physics at the University of York (expected to graduate in 2017). I'm enrolled on a PhD programme in computational biophysics at the University of York starting in the 2017–18 academic year.

I'm also interested in non-traditional journalism and science communication, and before I moved into development I was a freelance journalist. I was an administrator at Wikinews and a project manager at OpenGlobe, both citizen journalism projects under Creative Commons licences. I've also had some work published in the Science section of Nouse, the university's award-winning campus newspaper.

In my downtime, I listen to terrible music and read far less than I'd like. I have an interest in concepts related to heraldry, vexillology, and cartography, because I'm dull.

I should perhaps also mention that I once sang on a record-breaking UK hit single and was Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 2006, although I don't mean to brag.
