Hello, everyone! My name is Oliver (he/him). I'm a 2nd year PhD student in a Political Science program. I am learning to use quantitative methods to study civil war, international intervention, state violence, and human rights issues. I come from an interstate conflict background, and so I'm more familiar with IR than comparative politics, at the moment. I look forward to meeting some cool people :)

Hi Scholar! I’ve joined this instance a few years ago, but I’ve been too shy to introduce myself. My name is Damiano, I am a medical doctor in Public Health. I work as statistician at the University Hospital of Caen Normandy (France) and as assistant professor in statistics and public health at the University of Caen. […]

[…] My (personal) research work focuses mainly on end-stage kidney disease. I look for risk factors of cardiovascular events in the French population treated by dialysis or transplantation. For that, I use the database of the French National Health Insurance. I am a huge fan, and though I have a no data science / programming background, I am doing quite well.

Hi all!

I'm an undergrad historian aspiring to academia. I'm interested in cultural history, especially the history of ideas and the representation of history in culture and media

Academically I have mostly studied the US and N America, though recently I developed a keen interest in Soviet history (being a leftist and also originally from Russia), and was hoping to use this platform to connect with others interested in Soviet history

I'm very excited to be here with y'all!

I have already been suspending bad accounts and instances where appropriate

But feel free to bring any new accounts to my attention (err or the side of letting me know rather than assuming I've already seen them)

There seems to be a campaign of targeted harassment aimed at trans users across different instances

Please use the "report" option if you see anything like this and I will act on it immediately when I see it

Thanks

A reminder that transphobia on Scholar Social gets your account deleted (and all its alts blocked)

Trans women are women, full-stop.

Hi scholar.social and fediverse! 👋

I've recently been selected to continue my research as a OPTIMA research fellow at Monash University.

Hello everyone, I’m a Portuguese student starting to think about my thesis. I have an interest in understanding user’s opinions about some of Mastodon’s core features. I would love to get some advice on how to make my work the best it can be! At the moment I am having trouble figuring out how to create a sample of an instance’s population that can be considered representative and achieved in an ethical way. Thank you all very much in advance I look forward to meeting you all!

Continued /#introductions.

My educational background is in with a focus on . I've described arthropod exposures, surveyed distribution, and studied localities and . More recent interest in the same vein is toward facies description using description in core.

(trying to use singular rather than plural hashtags is kind of hard in this context!)

Hello everyone! This Thursday, on August 5 at 8:00 am UTC, I will be presenting about the concept of artificial intelligence at Scholar.Social’s summer school. My two main points will be a conceptualization of the line drawn between “AI” and “just code”, and the relation between concepts of AI and concepts of humans. It would be great to see many of you there, so please sign up for it if you haven’t already!

Coming soon: 2021-08-06 at 7:00 PM UTC
