Hi all! I'm a faculty member in the School of Planning and Public Affairs at the University of Iowa. I do research on bicycle/pedestrian safety and travel behaviour. Previously worked as an engineer in various aspects of aviation.

When I'm not working I like riding bikes, flying gliders and doing a bit of sim racing. (transportation bleeds into my hobbies too I guess)

I've mainly avoided social media in the past, but going to give it a shot here.

Hello friends! I'm an early career linguist and educator teaching academic literacy and researching bilingual phonetics and syntax. I'm currently teaching multimodal communication in the University of Hong Kong, and am looking to apply for doctorate programmes in (applied) linguistics.

I'm going to share my thoughts here, deep or silly, about languages, my teaching, and the world from my perspective💕 And probably my photography and other things I enjoy in life.

See y'all around!

Hi everyone!
My name is Håkon and I'm a PhD student in computer science. I'm using machine learning to study ecological behavior patterns in farmed salmon and general time series analysis.

I am the main author of two papers:

- sciencedirect.com/science/arti

- ieeexplore.ieee.org/abstract/d

And a co-author of one paper:

- arxiv.org/abs/2010.10475

I'm a heavy emacs user and rely on org-mode, org-roam and org-ref for my day to day work.

Looking forward to get to know you all!

Hi, everyone! I'm pursuing my bachelor's in physics and trying to figure out what direction to go as I take that to Ph.D. and into research. I'm a little conflicted on that since part of me wants to understand the nature of the universe and reality, maybe leading to things like particle physics and quantum mechanics, but another part of me wants to help make sure humanity doesn't kill itself with things like clean energy like fusion or space travel and habitation.

introduction 

Hi everyone! :ThisIsFine:

I am a fourth-year PhD student in systems engineering. I love this engineering discipline and I want to apply it to systems that sustain life (livingry!).

My research is about developing the open tools and model-based architecture for a computing system that is trustworthy and serves the user.

Would love to meet others who recognize the social dangers of modern computing and want to discuss alternatives from first principles.

Peace! ✌️

I haven't done an introduction since I came here I think? I do jokey ones off public but


I'm a queer, disabled, white trash, catholic, cyclist, cajun academic.

I adore teaching. I'm doing a PhD in Political Science. I research neoliberalism and how it manifests itself as a political language in American politics. I also research care ethics as an alternative to neoliberalism.
I've done work on a lot of different subject and love to share my work and read others' work!

Hi, everyone! I'm an undergrad studying.. um. Something. Maybe English, comparative literature, biology, or... some combination? I love to write/bake/read/play guitar. I use any pronouns!

Hello to everyone! My name is Vellen, you can call me Velle. I'm starting a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a focus on Advanced Trauma Informed Counseling soon. In my spare time I read, study the worst of humanity, listen to music/podcasts, and learn other topics of interest as I am interested in them. I will be posting thoughts about various topics I know about and what I am learning currently. As well as posts about serial killers and other criminals.

My interests are pretty eclectic. I started out focused on German history, but reading about the Sonderweg and the shifts in historical methodology made me interested in theoretical questions and the other social sciences.

Currently, I am trying to improve my note taking, so I can better aggregate what I know/am interested in.

Pursuant to that, I am trying to learn emacs, orgmode, and orgroam. It's been a bit rough.


Hi, everyone! I'm a PhD student in bioengineering, and I love designing and building hardware+software tools. For my thesis, I'm studying challenges and strategies for open-source medical devices for global health equity: how might platforms and communities be built to support cooperative production of medical devices appropriate for local contexts, all the way from invention to implementation?

Hello! I have an account elsewhere on the fediverse but will be posting about academic things and my current research project here at scholar.social

I'm an undergrad anthropology major in the U.S. South and I'm currently working on my honors thesis project

It consists of a survey about neurodiversity and the importance of online communities, and I will be sharing it from this account very soon! I'll also be posting updates about it and other research I do
