👋 Hello! Here is a short #introduction

Call me: Leo

Pronouns: he/him


Work: Lecturer in Geophysics at University of Liverpool, UK. I use maths + coding + data to investigate the Earth. I also make open-source software to enable all of that, including my teaching.

Personal: Brazilian, proud father, amateur bread baker, sci-fi & fantasy, been really into Smash Bros Ultimate lately (I play Incineroar poorly).

Posting mostly about science, coding, academia.

Looking at emission you often have the idea we did not do anything about climate change for decades.

But what we did do was decreasing prices of renewable energy enormously and we have started serious growth; see figure below.

That now makes it relatively easy to do a lot, if we want to.

P.S. In case people wonder why we do not hear much about concentrating solar power (DesertTech) anymore: PV has become cheaper. (It still has the benefit of delivering power at night.)

J'ai 2 principales missions au ministère de l'Éducation nationale. Participer à ce qu'il y ait plus de libre (dans les machines, les pratiques et les esprits) et plus de filles dans le numérique.
Alors lorsqu'un enseignant m'envoie cette photo depuis sa salle info entièrement sous GNU/Linux (+ affiches @LaQuadrature en arrière-plan) vous comprendrez aisément que cela me touche ;)

I like how "peer-review" concept is popularized now.

There is an issue though: the peer-review in science has all the same problems as maintenance work has in the software development.

Scientists are not paid or promoted for peer-reviews. In academic circles usually you praise people who do original research, not those who dig into the research of others.

And no one will give you a Fields medal for understanding what other Fields nominee actually did.
