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.
