Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.

– Carl Sagan

Smart guy, Carl Sagan.  The cosmos isn’t necessarily my thing, but it doesn’t make him any less insightful.  Science in general boils down to a pretty simple question: how does ______ work?  Masses of socially awkward people we call scientists lock themselves away in little labs to ask, sometimes even answer, that question and its derivatives.  It is a simple question that’s grown into something quite broad and rather vague – ask 10 people what they define as “science” and you’ll get varying responses, especially if you ask 10 scientists.

And that, in a roundabout way, brings me here.  As an undergrad in a relatively small chemistry department, I’m just scratching the surface of how cool most of science can be, so when Matt asked me to to be a chemistry contributor here it made a lot of sense to hop on board.   I’m primarily interested in inorganic chemistry, so most of what I throw up on here would presumably be about that, as well as whatever else I find worth writing about, science related or no. So thanks for stopping by, and we hope you like what you read.
