New job, new !
This week I joined the lovely folks at the Ada Lovelace Institute as Senior Researcher on Public Sector Algorithms. adalovelaceinstitute.org/

I'm looking forward to building out a programme of research and I'd love to speak to anyone who's working in this area (in the UK or elsewhere) about what they're excited / nervous / thoughtful about right now. Let's get a (real or virtual) coffee!

Ciao! My name is Marilena and I've recently been accepted to the University of to finish my Master's Degree in ... after a few years pause. I feel excited but also scared. Despite the name of the course, my dissertation is in , specifically the works of , and .

Hi, I’m Dr. Andrés Ospina-Álvarez, currently I’m working at Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies (IMEDEA) (Mallorca Island – Spain).

My current research line focuses on marine spatial ecology, including transport; dispersal and recruitment of early age stages of marine species; the modelling of species’ habitat; spatial planning approaches promoting populations’ connectivity; and the use of network analysis to address complex ecological problems like seafood traceability.

Hello there.

I'm thrilled to be here and get in touch with a lot of scientists alike. I'm Daniel, based in Hamburg, and a student of media and communications science as well as political science. Currently I'm working on my Bachelor thesis on the topic of “News repertoires in times of crisis“.

One of my special interests is Anti-Semitism research, which is hopefully the direction I'm heading into after my BA. Any questions? Hit me up!

Hey friends,

For the last 2 years, we've hosted an interdisciplinary inter-time-zone all-online all-free conference for the Fediverse

So I'm gauging interest for 2022

If you want to be one of the co-organizers (one of the people who makes sure that presenters have moderators and fills out the schedule, etc—we're not recruiting moderators or presenters yet), please reply to this message as a DM before 2022-06-04 and I'll schedule a meeting!

Hi all, my name is Rohan kapitany, and I'm an experimental psychologist in the UK. I study ritual, religion, and the supernatural/fantastical (in adult, children, and cross-cultural contexts). Presently at Keele University, previously a postdoc at Oxford.

I will also tweet about eurorack and D&D, because I'm more than just my job and my research (or I try to be!).

Hi, all. I help applied energy researchers with metadata strategy. I speak scientist (EECS PhD in nanofabrication), developer (mostly Python and web tech), and ontologist (RDF and friends). I’m a huge fan of FAIR and knowledge graphs. I do a podcast on Machine-Centric Science: podcast.polyneme.xyz

A point of etiquette:

As a courtesy to everyone on Scholar, we'd like to ask you to help keep from filling up the Local Timeline with very long threads

This means that if you are writing a thread, please do one of the following:

1. Make the first post Public and the following posts Unlisted (others will see the rest of the thread when they click the first post, but the following posts won't be on the Local Timeline), or

2. Add "Long thread" as a Content Warning (CW) for the thread

Thanks!

Hello everyone! The time has come to present my .

@magiccampus Hi, sorry, but Scholar Social is meant for individuals, not institutions

I'm going to have to ask you to move to another instance

Scholar Social is taking a break from new sign-ups for the time being to allow the new people who recently joined to either settle in if they like it here, or wander off if they don't

I'll also be able to gradually work through the list of remaining people who signed up that I haven't even gotten to yet

Depending on how many people stick around, registrations may open again at a later date

The priority is ensuring that effective moderation is possible and maintaining community ethos

Hey scholar buds.
If you're responding to your post making a thread, making the responses unlisted will help them not clutter up the timeline.
They'll still be visible as a thread that can be expanded.

Hi everyone!

Don't forget about @oneabstractaday

Make posts with abstracts that you think others would want to see and mention @oneabstractaday in the post

You don't need to do one a day, but you could if you wanted!

Be sure to use the Unlisted, not the Public privacy setting, so that the Local Timeline doesn't get filled up

And follow @oneabstractaday if you want to see the abstracts that others have posted!
