The “somewhat confused as to what scientific field I actually belong to” badge


Also known as the transdiscplinary, interdiscplinary, multidisciplinary, or intradisciplinary badge. (D)


  1. Keith

    Um… systems biology, anyone..?

  2. Brain chemistry / dietetics / computer systems design / in silico membrane simulation

  3. Ah…. evolutionary biology as directed by adaptive behavior, which incidentally is only really relatable if you know about human psychology and cultures first?

  4. BB

    Biochemistry/mechanistic enzymology to immunology and cell signaling

  5. Comptational Biologist

    HAHAHA BB nice try but thats just plain old biochem/cell bio, hardly two fields. Try a little computer science and statistics thrown in there, now thats two fields

  6. Jaciel

    Does biophysics count on its own? If not, there’s also forensics, psychology, computer programming, and medical botany.

    I’m…somewhat of a polymath, actually. Linguistics and game theory as well. :

    …I need a life.

  7. Philip

    1st degree in Microbiology.
    PhD in microfluidics, microsensors etc.

    Now to find a suitable Postdoc…

  8. Hanna

    A mixture of geology, biology, enviromental studies and ecology…I usually just say that I´m an biologist. Makes my life a bit easier :P

  9. Hilary Holz

    Agile Technomethodologist :) Geek (with actual contributions to free software projects, lol), social scientist (accepted by peers as such), tenured faculty (but bailing back into the private sector because its just too hard to do any real design and development within academia once tenured and established), statistician (“you know, Hilary, this was really a dissertation in statistics” “yeah, but no statistics department in the country would have let me do it”)

  10. What about cognitive science?

  12. Jon

    I’m a geologist-evolutionary biologist-ichthyologist-marine biologist-herpetologist-botanist-conservation biologist!
