Shared name and other eerie similarities RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I share not only the same name and degree, but apparently some research interests and employment history with Dr. Peter J. O'Brien at the University of Toronto.  It may therefore take some work to deconvolute our publication histories, geneologies, collaborators, etc..   Any suggestions?
