I use this blog primarily to share nature photographs but most people come here for my tips on scientific posters. My photography site is at https://colinpurrington.smugmug.com if you’d care to browse — prints available of all.

You can also find me on Twitter. And sometimes on Instagram.

In case you’re interested, I’m a graduate of Reed College (BA) and Brown University (PhD), then did post-doctoral research at Washington University and the University of Chicago. I taught evolutionary biology at Swarthmore College from 1997 to 2011.

If my posts have brought you happiness in some way and you’d like to buy me a virtual coffee, you can do that via my ko-fi page. Or surprise me with a book from my Amazon wishlist.
