Hello, I'm a PhD student on anaerobic digestion in Argentina. Specifically working on algae anaerobic co-digestion and wastewater treatment, trying to optimize the process and cycling nutrients.

Also about to begin learning different models of anaerobic digestion, like ANM or BNRM.

Feel free to reach me for any conversation. Be aware, I'm still learning English.


Howdy! I'm a recent grad from UNC CH in linguistics, looking to dive more into the (socio-/historical) of the Nordic languages. In particular, I like the vernacular varieties of northern Sweden, but just about any Nordic language is cool. I'm also interested in queer linguistics, and have co-authored a coming paper on singular they.

For fun I like to play video games, learn languages (Swedish and Gaelic are my current loves) and futz around on discord.

Hello! I'm an undergrad at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire about to switch to Critical Theory from the English Education program.

Hello everyone! I'm an incoming grad student in the Master of Environmental Studies program at the University of Pennsylvania.

If there are any degrowthers on here, I'd love to get connected!

I'm also a classically-trained actor who enjoys memes, music, animation, dance, and peanut butter. 🤖

I'm a fan of open science and reproducibility. I enjoy climbing, hiking, and growing up all over again with my daughter.

I'm looking to engage with people with similar research interests and who can help me further develop myself as a data scientist.

I am Black, queer, nonbinary, & an unabashed people person. MD/PhD student in NYC; trying to escape with my sanity & ethics intact. Learning to value kindness over cleverness.

Lots of boosts & personal posts here; to be forewarned is to be forearmed.

Listing some things I like until I reach the character limit: tarot, storytelling, video games, worldbuilding, non-vocal music, sci-fi/fantasy (esp from people often erased from our vision of the future), plants, & you (probably).
