Interests in Chemistry

My back ground is in physical-organic chemistry, which is the study of the physical properties of organic molecules (specifically kinetics and mechanisms in my case).

I have also developed a primitive program on which simulates chemical reactions.

Other Interests

I am a member of the Society for the Creative Anachronism, which is an educational group interested in recreating the middle ages as it should have been. In this group, I am known as Cadifor Cynan of the Barony of Thescorre. Cadifor is a Welshman from approximately the 1200s. Cadifor lives in the barony of Thescorre which is located in the Kingdom of Aethelmearc.

I am an avid bridge player (when I have the time!). On Bridge Base Online, a free sire which allows bridge players to play live bridge games over the internet with persons from around the world, my screen name is "tad".
