As my bio says, I am an economist by education, IT engineer by trade and still lamenting that I didn't study physics instead. Currently working at a technomagickal makerspace on acid. Building the platforms and systems where others develop software for detector arrays and crunch the numbers that come out of the experiments at CERN and elsewhere. Sometimes I feel like I'm doing the most boring part of the work :)

Hello ! I recently started my first postdoc in astrophysics at Unige. My main research interests are observational cosmology and artificial intelligence. I also play the euphonium and teach astronomy.

Hi everyone, glad to be here, all of your stories sound so cool! I'm Jackie. I wish I could share something similar, but I actually feel really stuck right now! I've had a hard time getting traction as a nonbinary person in an engineering field. Would anyone possibly consider letting me come to you for advice or even just hearing my story? To finish the intro I like art, writing, video games, cats, and knowing way too much about magnetostatic spin waves.

So, Steno here, postdoc currently giving it a try in academia.
Later on who knows, but in any case i promise I will try to keep the little grey cells playing. I believe that a broad transversal education can make science better (yep, even "hard" ones).

Hi all, pleased to meet you! I'm a returning student originally from Boston (now near Cuba) who studied accounting and finance; I'm now studying analytics in one of those midlife career change moves that happen fairly frequently. I'm happy to be back and excited to share ideas and questions with you all. Technology in education and in the public sector are some of the topics I love reading about; my last research paper was about the role of blockchain in public administration.

Scaring off people we don't want here 

Hello all. I am a student who belong some Japanese small college. I'm majoring English. I love reading most, Japanese and English ones both. These days I started Mastodon then I joined this instance. I would like to know how English speaking people thinking esp. formal communities. What's more I'm always struggling several English & IT certification exams, for my future jobs. Then, I'm trying to be much nicer man. Thanks.

I’m a geographer working on climate justice and currently focussed on coal. Check out my website if you want the longer version 😉. I’m here intrigued by the possibility of social media without the shouting. Also, I structure my procrastination by over-optimising my computer workflows (i.e. waste time devising ways to save time)

hello all, I’m a librarian with experience in academic and public libraries. I love the field of librarianship, and almost every librarian I meet is good people. I’m into speculative fiction, old cookbooks, and exploring digital privacy. Hope to learn and grow here. :)

So I've posted this to my twitter but let's also post it here: I'm picking up they/them pronouns and dropping everything else. Also, I don't believe anyone here but people who already follow me elsewhere know me by other names but I'm also dropping everything but my was-a-penname-now-just-a-name.

So yeah! Loki, they/them. Destroyer of Facts and Logic™️.

I'm finally on mastadon! And inspired by @bgcarlisle I'm on Lets see if I use this more than twitter...
