As it's february now, I've put up a new title picture for the blog (new year's resolution: new picture for every month, like a good old-fashioned wall calendar!). What looks like the road to nowhere there, is actually the much appreciated (and normally much busier) cycle path towards Oxford city centre.
It also means that Valentine's Day is coming up. If you're looking for a present for your scientifically minded love interest, I recommend:
Lust and love: is it more than chemistry?
... which I translated and edited. The book is still available in the original German edition, and has also been translated into Korean and Spanish.
