I'm at @fosdem this weekend, currently in the session on Open Research Tools. Three great talks so far, all analyzing the same deficiencies: training of scientists, sustainability of software, best practices in development.
Interestingly, no one presented the obvious solution so far: Research Software Engineers! 😉

We should work on our outreach!


Great talk about Secure Health Data Infrastructures by @msuhr . Abstract and slides can be found under

Another question for folks on the instance... I write in and manage in bibtex using bibdesk, but am thinking about moving to + zotfile + BBT ( which can manage auto export of libraries to bibtex, I gather. Anyone else out there have comments re using Zotero for a bib(la)tex scholarly workflow? It’s important to me that I have access to database in the form of bibtex files.

(Signature in panel 3 says NAKANDART)

Hello. I'm a researcher/technologist with a focus on biomedical informatics. Main focus is creating novel software tools to help clinicians and researchers do their research. I also like trying out new software tech, with an interest in privacy focussed tools.

Outside academia most of my time is spent looking after my young son, but when I get a chance I also like listening to, playing and writing music.

Looking forward to contributing!

I totally love this piece on why everyone needs to start building personal websites again by @laura - eloquently captures all the values I’m chasing in my own scholarship and internet presence without being heavy handed.
