Hello everyone, nice to meet you all. My name is Akshay and this is my :D

I'm a 21 y/o student of Mechanical Engineering at the Govt. Polytechnic in Nagpur, India. I love making, building things, interacting and contributing to all things free and open source, though I also call myself a /curious bystander/ as I have nothing to show for it (yet 🙂).

In the long run, I want to study Materials Science and develop sustainable substances and processes to help with our energy needs.

Here's a cat for you guys; /the first one ever/ to have let me pet her :D

@akshay Welcome to fedi! Are there specific existing projects you are excited about?

@csepp Hello and thank you 🙏 Um can't say with much certainty as it's almost always /oh, I love this... oh no I don't know anything about it; gotta learn!/ 😅 but Sourcehut, Tor etc in software and Stewart platforms, manipulating optics (as done on the Webb telescope), OpenFlexure are a few things I'm amazed by and want to work on :D

@akshay #TIL about OpenFlexure and their microscope project, this is cool as heck.
