I have a Physics PhD, where I studied pulsar astrophysics. Now, I'm a systems engineer for a defense contractor working space programs like GPS. I occasionally get away for a bit of fishing, and I'm a longtime proud member of the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists.

Computational physics, especially astrophysics, is very interesting stuff! Good luck, I hope you come up with some fascinating results.
