Patrick Thompson University College London geologist and student journalist

Patch is currently a student in the Earth Science department at UCL and as such spends a large amount of his time looking at, dealing with and talking about rocks.

Outside of the world of rocks Patch has written for a number of publications including the online science magazine Experimentation and his own blog Thinkingaloud. Despite choosing a degree as a ‘rock botherer’ he is a self-confessed politics nerd and will, if you even meet him in a bar, happily bore you to death on a full spectrum of issues from LGBT rights to state education.
