about

Hello. I’m Nicola. My middle initial is J, which stands for Joan. This could have been Joan of Arc or Pope Joan but the most important Joan was my Aunty Joan and I was named after her.

I am a scientist. I’ve lived in London, New York, Bury St Edmunds, Vancouver and Melbourne. At the moment I live in Norwich. As well as science, I like mountains, oceans & rivers; climbing, snowboarding & skiing; kayaking, diving & running.

This site hosts pictures and a few words about these things. Photographs, with a few exceptions, were taken by me or by my partner. Please don’t use them without permission – if you want to use one, just flick me an email (nicolapatron at me dot com). Thanks.
