Hi, everyone! I'm a PhD student in bioengineering, and I love designing and building hardware+software tools. For my thesis, I'm studying challenges and strategies for open-source medical devices for global health equity: how might platforms and communities be built to support cooperative production of medical devices appropriate for local contexts, all the way from invention to implementation?

preparing for this consultation in a thousand hours and realizing that one of the difficulties my committee is having with it literally comes from political science being so rigid with subfield boundaries that the idea of blurring them at all is incomprehensible

and this is why academia needs some shaking up


Marcia, fine artist, film-maker, PhD candidate in Barça. Afro-Indigenous femme. I do artistic research, Afro-Caribbean phenomenology & a focus on phenomenology in an Hispano-Carib context. Creator of hashtags & tools on here like , .

Been here for 3 yrs & was a mod on the only Blk instance that was harassed off here.

I don't take bs anymore. But I'm also lovely :)

I have my own subscription service & host reading groups. Come thru

I haven't done an introduction since I came here I think? I do jokey ones off public but


I'm a queer, disabled, white trash, catholic, cyclist, cajun academic.

I adore teaching. I'm doing a PhD in Political Science. I research neoliberalism and how it manifests itself as a political language in American politics. I also research care ethics as an alternative to neoliberalism.
I've done work on a lot of different subject and love to share my work and read others' work!

introduction 

Hi everyone! :ThisIsFine:

I am a fourth-year PhD student in systems engineering. I love this engineering discipline and I want to apply it to systems that sustain life (livingry!).

My research is about developing the open tools and model-based architecture for a computing system that is trustworthy and serves the user.

Would love to meet others who recognize the social dangers of modern computing and want to discuss alternatives from first principles.

Peace! ✌️
