Hi, I'm a cognitive science PhD candidate at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

My research interests include cognitive modeling of psychometric tasks and phenomena, reasoning and relational thinking, cognitive architectures, and the foundations of cognitive science.

Some of you know I've started a blog called FOSS Academic (fossacademic.tech). I'm exploring life as an academic who tries to use as much free and open source software as possible. You know, being a lonely humanities Linux user at a university.

I'm writing to solicit questions people might have about being a FOSS Academic. Or maybe to solicit comments on the FOSS Academic Lifestyle Dream. Not that I know all the things, but I'm curious what questions people have about this area, if any.

I'm a teaching assistant for a large remote asynchronous introductory psychology course. The instructor and I are brainstorming ways to give students more opportunities to interact with us and each other. So far, we have thought of live review sessions and a discussion board. Any other suggestions?
