I have a PhD in cancer research – specifically blood vessel growth into tumours (angiogenesis) – from the Queen Mary University of London (UK) medical school. I’ve since been in digital communications roles, then upped sticks to the US of A.
You may address me as Dr Noodlemaz. Or my name. Or Maz.
I like to think of myself as a realist rather than a pessimist, but perhaps that’s just optimistic.
I’m a scientist, atheist, feminist, fake girl gamer and probably excellent at lots of things I don’t care to put the time into.
I’m obsessed with matching things (especially earrings, I have hundreds). Wilful ignorance annoys me.
I like languages. In 2010 I learned some Russian (title reads: ‘about me’/’myself’) and took my first ‘proper’ holiday there. Should brush up on the German, Spanish would probably be useful. I learned French for a few years when I was young but hated it and still haven’t gone back. From 2017 I’ve begun in Norwegian.
Love (in no particular order): music – I listen every day, can’t live without it. See Lyrics for a selection of musical words I like. TEA, my mum, husband, nature (a good ramble ftw), cider, games – video/board, friends, snow, pool (table+balls/billiards kind), red wine, pub quiz/trivia, dark chocolate…
Do not want: religion, smoking, general bigotry, rap, parmesan, crocs, grammar fail (we sell panini’s!), inconsiderate/selfish people, tinned tuna, James Corden…
Enough. Go put the kettle on.

In case people stumble upon this and think it’s true, here’s a counterpoint. One of a great many, you understand.
