Thaddeus M. Aid
My career started in IT and technical support before I returned to university to earn a degree in Computer Science at the University of Reading. I did a project in mobile aphasia therapy at Reading and learned that I really enjoy research. When I found the LSI DTC was offering D.Phils in evolution I applied. I am very interested in how our species evolved since we diverged from our common ancestor with our cousins the other apes.
