My primary background is in History, though I also have a degree in Psychology and am not far from completing a degree in Counseling.

My past work in the field of History was in Military History, and later on Religious an Philosophical History.

My current Post-Graduate study is focusing on Japanese History. I'm currently working on developing my language skills in the Japanese language. (No small feat, esp. while working 50+hrs a week.)

Hi! I am Guillaume from France, physicist turned into computational social neurobiologist & into multi-scale approaches to understand human cognition. At Institut Pasteur I do genetics, bioinfo & system biology, but started a neuroimaging platform in a child hospital to apply social neuroscience to . I love geeking AI/ML/stats too and doing art projects involving VR, rogue neuro-labs or sending brainwaves into space! Oh and I co-founded HackYourPhD & ALIUS 🤓

@introspection As for being "neutral," depending on what you mean by that, scholar.social isn't planning to be that either

We are explicitly anti-Nazi, anti-homophobia, anti-transphobia, anti-sexism and anti-racism

We are explicitly pro-inclusion and pro-accesibility

We ban people for harassment

We take sides, because failure to do so suggests a moral equivalence that undermines academic freedom itself

So we are not "neutral" in that sense

Hi I'm Stephanie. I'm interested in scicomm, and work for a women in STEM organisation. I've recently finished my psychology degree, and in the process of working out my next steps! Would love to connect with some folk interested in thoughtful discussion on a range of topics. Really pleased already to see the strong commitment to inclusion :-)

Hey! I'm a new post doc starting at the University of Pittsburgh. I'm interested in the effects of stress and genetics on neurodevelopment 🧠.

I use longitudinal designs in adolescents/young adults to look at effects on MRI-based measures of brain structure and function. I'm also interested in statistics , ML, and science outreach.

Excited to see where this goes!

Opinion question: If you consider yourself an academic, do you also consider yourself an educator? Do the two inherently overlap?

I consider myself an educator first and an academic second. I live in the overlapping Venn diagram area of the two that is librarianship and I’m curious to see how others feel about this.

Plus, I’m loving the level of dialogue here. It’s so refreshing to have engaged people who provide considered answers and not just drivel or who pontificate like effing bores.

Hi, I'm a theologian from Germany at Heidelberg University. The focus of my work is on Diakonia, Christian social engagement.

I am also interested in issues of , , , and .

I look for new ways of enabling forms of public discourse that bridge the divide between the ivory tower and "real life".

One of those instances is a new journal that emphasizes debate: cursor.pubpub.org
