Software developer

 

Background: Physics

 

Nationality: British

Richard Stones

My dream when I was a child was to become a mad scientist so it was probably inevitable that I ended up studying for a degree in Natural Sciences. After working as a software developer and travelling for a couple of years I went back to university to do a PhD in the quantum physics of biomolecular processes at UCL. There I realised I enjoyed programming more than the physics which led me to becoming a software developer in the Natbrainlab. I am currently working on a browser based app to display diffusion MRI data and perform brain lesion analysis.
 

I am also interested in science outreach.  I helped organise an exhibit called Quantum Secrets of Photosynthesis at the Royal Society Summer Science exhibition in 2016 before taking it to science and music festivals around the UK the following year.
