Damn paparazzi: thanks and farewell, Dustin Welbourne


The hell are YOU looking at

Thanks to @DustinWelbourne of UNSW, ANU and various outback paddocks for his past week curating @RealScientists. Dustin brought his PhD research on optimising non-invasive techniques for detecting animals (such as motion activated cameras and acoustic and ultrasonic recorders) out of the field directly into Your Computer And/Or Web-Accessible Mobile Device, much to the enjoyment of all.


Every day I’m snufflin’

Unfortunately Dustin has had to leave us…


…some folks just plain don’t like their photos taken. We wish Dustin all the best for his recovery and for the rest of his biogeography PhD at UNSW. Stay connected with Dustin on Twitter or on his blog. If you missed any of Dustin’s entertaining week on the account, hit up Storify.

Next week, all the way from Washington, DC: science artist Michele Banks, aka @artologica.


James is a recovering scientist and escaped postdoc who works in research management at the University of Otago, New Zealand. He's now retired from active @RealScientists duty, after serving from the project's beginnings in 2013 through to mid 2015. When not managing research, surviving #PlanetParenthood or pretending not to be an expat Australian in the Deep South of NZ, he tweets @theotherdrsmith.
