Hi, I'm Chloé, 24 and I'm a masterstudent in industrial engineering with the focus on environmental sciences at the University of Ghent, Belgium. My thesis subject is biochar used in constructed wetlands. But I have a broad interest in all kinds of science such as biology, astrology, medicine and overall engineering!
Looking forward to meeting you all!!

Ok, I just now notice that it should be astronomy and not astrology, I hadn't had my afternoon coffee yet 😂 ☕

@Chloe oh man I studied some stuff related to constructed wetlands in my undergrad and I'm so fascinated. Please don't hesitate to post excessively about it--be as nerdy as you want! Also welcome!

@SallyStrange I'll try to keep you guys updated, have to say I'm still very much in the startup fase :p

@Chloe Wonderful, no pressure! I just get excited about stuff like that.

@Chloe You can delete and redraft, you'll lose your boosts + favs and this thread, but it is a possibility.

Or you can post a new introduction and pin it to the top of your timeline so when people look at your profile they see it as a first post.

and hi!

I'll probably make a new one later. An edit option would be great here, but oh well.

Federated microblogging for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
