My name is Joe Mudge and I’m a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute of Environmental and Human Health (TIEHH) at Texas Tech University. I started this blog to give myself a place to develop and organize different ideas that have been floating around in my brain. My research involves coming up with new and (I think) improved data analysis tools for ecological and environmental research, so I’ll probably blog about that stuff in some posts. I also like thinking about ‘big questions’ so I’ll also be blogging about general issues facing ecology and, science and society, as I see them. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  1. Yup, I just finished a Master’s degree – which was complete unadulterated torture 🙂 Yay education! 🙂 I hope this blog is all you need it to be. Congrats on the PhD! Cheers.
