Hello, fediverse! My name is Pavan.
I'm a medical student aspiring to work in aerospace medicine.
My #interests are evolutionary biology, zoology, botany, nutrition, cosmology, astronomy, technology, and philosophy.
My #hobbies include video games, anime, reading, photography, traveling, and programming.
And with only ~ 40% of the cussing it normally takes!
Apologies for the downtime, scholar.social is now running Mastodon v 1.6.1
It's been a while and there are new people here, so I guess it's time for #introductions.
I'm Aaron, a Visual & Media Arts teacher in a K-8 public magnet school.
I have what has been called a dry, sarcastic sense of humor.
Most things I post will relate to those two sentences.
I have very strong opinions on politics, but don't post much about that here. (When I do, I use a CW.)
I am a widower as of June 2016. That wound is still fresh.
I am still learning.
I'm Marc, a university and school EFL teacher in Japan. I like the idea of public education for all. Unfortunately, I need to eat and feed my family so I work at private institutions because I could get work there.
My academic research interests are listening and phonology as well as corpus linguistics and Task-Based Language Teaching.
I am the grad school fairy, here to make your research problems disappear!
Or in #Lojban:
.i mi'e la crida be lo bavmulcu'e .i mi zvati tu'a do ki'u lo du'u cancygau ro da poi nabmi do lo nu datnysisku
I am also a doctoral candidate at McGill U in Montreal, where I work with the STREAM research group. My research is in medical research ethics.

I'm a trekkie. I'm also super-queer and love to make straight boys uncomfortable. I play the fiddle.
Hi! I'm Eric Eide, a professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah.
Unexpected houseguest this weekend
Will try to upgrade instance this week instead!
Hi all! I'm excited to give Mastodon a try. I'm a theology PhD student at Fordham University. I'm passionate about teaching and studying connections between the Catholic theological tradition, urbanism, and social justice. I'll be posting about my academic work (it was a thrill to find this scholar.social instance), but also about art, nature, podcasts, and sci-fi.
