Hi, my name is John Swinton. Im a 17 year old student living in the North-East of England, UK.

Im currently studying Bilology, Psychology, Drama and Maths at college, but hopefully I will be doing microbiology at university, maybe twinned with ginetics.

I have been into microscopes for a few years now, my dad works in pathology at a National Health Service hospital, and was given a microscope that was not needed any more, naturally I 'played' with it and realised it was so much more than a toy.

I have a pond and an expansive garden, so there is never a shortage of things to look at, Im perticularly interested in Tardigrades (water bears).

That about sums me up, I think I will enjoy this forum immensely Very Happy
