I’m Microbe Stew, otherwise known as Stewart Barker.
If this is your first time to visit Microbe Stew – Welcome! Please see my first blog post for an introduction to what this site is all about. If that piques your interest, take a look at my recent posts (look to the left of the screen!) or browse through the archives.
A little about me: I am a Biology graduate from Sheffield Hallam University. When i’m not talking about Science (especially Microbiology), I love discussing social media, Science communication and journalism, and wellbeing/mental health in academia.
I am also a proud Yorkshireman, and lover of good food, a wide range of music and photography!
