My name is Ryan Armstrong. I received my PhD in Biomedical Engineering from The University of Western Ontario in 2017. Although I am no longer professionally involved in science, I have a passion for public health and aptitude for spotting deception and pseudoscience. In addition to writing about scientific injustices, I volunteer with organizations dedicated to the promotion and education of sound science.
I make no money from this project and don’t intend to. I run the server at my own cost and I don’t expose users to invasive tracking and advertisement. As I have no involvement in the medical industry, I have no conflicts of interest to disclose.
