Hi there, for those of you who don’t know me already, my name is Sid. I’m currently studying for a PhD in Neuroscience. My project looks at the way that certain neurons in the fruit fly visual system, and early fruit fly brain, encode visual information. I also look at how this information is reflected in their behaviour. This type of research demands that I spend a great deal of time sat alone, in a laboratory, in the dark, at a microscope, or a computer…You get the gist? I therefore try to balance out these restrictions in my private life, by ‘heading for the hills’, so to speak, having become somewhat obsessed with the outdoors, particularly that associated with altitude, and snow of course! Alongside this obsession comes my burgeoning love of photography and also field recording, and a similar fascination with the best gear for the job.
