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

Hello all. This is a re- since I changed instances. I am a molecular and cell biologist specializing in cancer research and precision medicine. I also have degrees in business and computer science, so I think a lot about the impacts of technology and innovation on society. I am a strong advocate for open science and diversity in STEM. I run a data science collective and mentor underrepresented graduate/postdoctoral trainees at Hopkins. I am part Lakota and my pronouns are she/her.

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


Hello everyone! The time has come to present my .

I am a cell and developmental biologist working on cell division and using the Caenorhabditis elegans worm as a model.

I am a specialist in in vivo confocal microscopy, image analysis and quantification. I model the germline in 4D using various computer tools to better understand how stem cells divide.

@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

Hi there, I’m a PhD student in Econ based in Tokyo.
My field is a mixed of area studies and global economy. I’m focusing on the structural implication of Myanma-Thai cross-border labor movement on global value chain (and global economy at large).
I’m looking forward to collaborating with people inside and esp. outside of Econ.

Hello, I am Yuguang. I am a PhD student at LMU Munich, working on China-Yugoslavia relations in 1970s and 80s.

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!
