I just got my first academic job since finishing my PhD in 2017, so I'm celebrating with a new scholar.social account!
I'm interested in energy transitions and will be working on an electric vehicle-to-grid (V2G) trial as social researcher.
I'm also into architectural science and questioning the ubiquity of engineered solutions to human comfort.
@KatLH Congrats on the job!!
@KatLH ahh!! welcome to the instance!
@cxli hooray! thanks!
@KatLH I dunno if this is relevant to your research but one of my collaborators recently published this book https://books.google.com.au/books/about/Creating_Places_for_Happy_Humans.html?id=kjGUzQEACAAJ&redir_esc=y
@pelagikat thanks - looks interesting even if it's only peripherally relevant to the project (I'm trying to establish a habit of reading fairly widely)
@KatLH I'd lend you my copy except...
@KatLH hell yeah!
@KatLH Your work sounds nifty --- of course, it's very far from anything I do, so I have nothing particular to say about it!
@KatLH Congrats! And welcome! :D
@bgcarlisle thanks! super pumped for some scholar.social
@KatLH ooh, congratulations! Sounds like a great project, too.
@KatLH congrats all round!
@ben_hr thanks Ben!
@KatLH Congratulation!!! Getting your first academic job is a great accomplishment. But now, while the fun begins, the real work begins. Work on on behalf of your students and balance it with your research.
@esuess thank you, and good advice. I definitely like to see academics putting their students first.
