Applied for a job as school psychologist. I probably won't be called even for an interview (because is the only place in the universe that doesn't have a shortage on psychologists), but I'd really like to work in educational settings.

I often wonder if undergraduate life has gotten more difficult since my own college days. And I'm not even thinking of the pandemic. Students nowadays have to do all this time-sensitive work on multiple platforms. Their work process is also intensely monitored. I think back to my college classes & remember professors being like, "I'll lecture. Take notes. Or don't. Pass this paper in by the end of the week. If you do that, we're good." This no longer seems the case.

Hi, everyone! I'm a PhD student in bioengineering, and I love designing and building hardware+software tools. For my thesis, I'm studying challenges and strategies for open-source medical devices for global health equity: how might platforms and communities be built to support cooperative production of medical devices appropriate for local contexts, all the way from invention to implementation?

Hi, everyone! I'm pursuing my bachelor's in physics and trying to figure out what direction to go as I take that to Ph.D. and into research. I'm a little conflicted on that since part of me wants to understand the nature of the universe and reality, maybe leading to things like particle physics and quantum mechanics, but another part of me wants to help make sure humanity doesn't kill itself with things like clean energy like fusion or space travel and habitation.
