Hello! I'm Jonathan and my identity on here will mostly be as a Master's* student. My interests are primarily in computer science and in particular , but can range from mathematics to logic to physics.

For those of you coming from my alt account, assuming I remember to post here, I cannot guarantee a decrease in shitposts, only an increase in their tastefulness.

* soon...

Hi all! I'm a computer scientist/graph theorist/algorithmicist of some sort. I'm currently a postdoc but looking for a more permanent position.

My work, as might be guessed, is all to do with getting computers to do things, fast. Everything from matching things to things (e.g., teachers to schools) efficiently, to fancy things like parameterised complexity.

I'm here just to find people to occasionally talk to, and build some sort of community.

Howdy folks 🤠 I'm a Rhetoric MA student in the Upper Midwest (US). I also teach a section of first year composition!

My current work is on protest rhetorics, sexuality, and digital culture studies. I'll be (re)posting some WIPs on here occasionally.

Otherwise, expect posts on culture jamming, upheavals in academia, and sex from me 👍

I hope to meet more people in rhet and comp through this instance and queer scholars across disciplines :HeartPride:

Greetings, everyone. I teach philosophy and English courses at a historically black university in the southern United States.

I am here to network with like-minded professionals and to provide an open channel for communication with my students.

My name is Felipe, I am a MSc student in the Bioinformatics program at Federal University of Minas Gerais (Brazil) and graduated in Biology. I have interest in making new work partnerships!

Hi all. I'm mainly a programmer/ data scientist. I think a lot about those things and how we could use them for the common good. Aside from that I'm also quite interested in social justice, philosophy and art. I'm not currently in any research position but still like to do research and science communication in my spare time. If you need a CS/ statistics person for some help, feel free to reach out! I'm also starting a blog about basically anything on sam-vente.com

Hi to all! I discussed my PhD thesis almost two years ago, I have a PhD in Philosophy, and my research field was philosophy of music, aesthetics, and political philosophy. I had some problems during my PhD (health and psychological problems, mobbing) and I discussed my thesis without any pubblication. After a couple of years I would like to try to enter again in the research field, and I joined this instance to ask for advice to others academics in order to find advice.
