BS in biology with an informal emphasis on animal behavior and behavioral ecology, as well as more psych and philosophy courses than I care to count
Working on an MS in biology prior to Ph.D work

BS mechanical engineering - strenghts of materials discipline specifically (as opposed to fluids). 
Gears and pulleys instead of hydraulics and pneumatics? Weak lol

no. titanium, steel, gears, pulleys, hyraulics and pneumatics instead of HVAC, refrigeration units, and reynolds numbers.

What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

BS Physics
MS Mathematics
Hobbies: Historical linguistics, music (especially guitar), early Christianity
Trade: Historical and sport fencing, photography

Whether I'm an expert at any of these is debatable (though knowledge of historical fencing is so unusual that I may very well be an expert).

Fencing is really fun. There are lots of places that teach it around here, but I'm not sure of the situation where you live. I say give it a try if you can. Though I teach foil I'd recommend epee since it makes more intuitive sense.

I have an extensive knowledge of human anatomy/physiology and pharmocology, the only relevant things that I would consider myself an expert on.
You can't prove it either way so you have to make a choice.

Nobody teaches fencing where I live. I wish!

Is the epee the big one?

Yes.

I think that it would be a whole lot of fun to learn fencing. I have always been a fan.
