James Reid

James Reid - Time Lord


I was born in New Zealand, spent decent chunks of my childhood in the USA and UK, worked in Canada, and now live in Australia.  I started out as a real scientist, but somehow became a theorist/computer programmer in thermodynamics, right on the border between chemistry, physics and people don’t really care.  Oh, and I also picked up a law degree and worked as a legal researcher in the public service for a while.

Somehow amongst all of this, I found a wonderful wife, had three beautiful children, and found the time to read, watch and listen to a lot of genre fiction.

As a legal trained scientist programmer with writing and reviewing skills, I have a messed up set of professional pages:

  • I have a university mandated webpage.
  • I have a linkedin account in.
  • Google scholar in the social media list has my scientific publications.
  • And of course I have this blog, with a contact form below.
