*Officially, my name is Brandon Brooks, though I only respond to the name Bubba. I realize the name likely conjures the image of a shrimp boat captain or a cartoon bear, depending on where you’re from in the world, but unfortunately I’m neither. I’m a scientist interested microorganisms. I’ve considered modifying Wikipedia’s inventory of Bubbas to include a scientist, but was once told writing content on Wikipedia about one’s self is poor form. If you’re interested my name’s origin story, see here.
