vent, anti-blackness 

There's a certain dominant media cauldron of white moderates who take fascist greivance at face value, launder it by stripping out the most blatant dogwhistles, and continue to amplify racist ideas using more palatable rhetoric.

If someone uncritically forms their worldview based on such media, learns to excise anti-black terms from their vocabulary one-by-one, but does nothing to change their media consumption habits...I'm not sure that person actually ends up less racist.

My doctoral advisor Reinhard Hinkelmann at TU Berlin is looking to fill a full-time PhD position (Computational Hydrology/Hydraulics). It's a great position in a great group. German language is required, because of teaching duties.

My first lecture on "Ecohydrological Modelling" starts in 15 minutes!

Our institute's BSc programme was featured in the newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung (in German) in a discussion on "green jobs."

Diseases like small-pox have been weaponized by colonizers to eliminate Native Americans. They tried the same on Native Hawaiians, but we used contact-tracing, lockdowns, vaccines & universal healthcare (which we invented) to prevent biological warfare from wiping out our people.

Do you know about papers that compare implicit vs. explicit PDE solvers in terms of parallel performance? @wim_v12e , perhaps you know something about this?

#Berlin we *urgently* need a lot of accommodation for #BIPoC arriving from #Ukraine today; dozens of people are here in the office in Wedding, waiting for accommodation

Mention where/how long you can offer housing, what languages you speak
If you can even house someone for even just 1 day that would be super helpful.

In this paper, Gillefalk and colleagues present an ecohydrological
modelling study of an urban area in Berlin, Germany, containing three
parks. They show that trees are the major source of
evapotranspiration in urban areas and that green spaces affect the
urban microclimate.

on march 30, 2022, i will give a guest lecture at the urban water interfaces research training group, tu berlin:

climate emergency calls for process-based modelling

30 march 2022, 2 pm, online


So the road to the Scientists Rebellion of April (when the IPCC Report leaked in September will be out) is now paved: "throughout February and March 2022, Scientist Rebellion is organising a series of talks dedicated to the climate and ecological emergency and what we can do about it"

Still a WIP (gender balance issues there) but i think it's important to show we can both "talk the talk" and "WALK the talk"! :ExtinctionRebellion:


presentations I contributed to (2/2)

+ Using high-resolution integrated-hydrology and reactive-transport modeling for unraveling concentration-discharge (C-Q) relationships in a mountainous watershed |

+ SERGHEI: A Performance Portable HPC Simulation Tool For Computational Hydrology |

Please reach out if you find any of these topics interesting :)

presentations I contributed to (1/2). Perhaps you will find some of them interesting:

+ A scale-adaptive framework to predict river corridor and watershed hydrobiogeochemistry across scales |

+ A methodology for generating and validating downscaled estimates of meteorological data at the basin scale |

My presentations. Say Hello if you are attending:

- Runoff Generation in the Presence of Microtopography: Integrated Hydrological Model Results for Hillslopes at the Steady State (

- Controls on hydrological (dis)connectivity in a headwater-dominated sub-catchment: Insights through process-based integrated hydrology simulations (

pleased that our work on classifying runoff generation mechanisms through integrated surface-subsurface hydrology modelling has been accepted for presentation at the 2nd iahr young professionals congress.

It scarcely matters how green you think you are. The main cause of your environmental impact isn’t your attitude. It isn’t your mode of consumption. It isn’t the choices you make. It’s your money. If you have surplus money, you spend it. While you might persuade yourself that you are a green mega-consumer, in reality you are just a mega-consumer.

If there is anyone here who'd like to work with me as a Research Associate from 1 Jan 2022 until 31 July 2023 or for a shorter period, full-time or part-time, please let me know.

Closing date is 13 Oct, no applicants so far so I will re-advertise if needed.

The post is on a research project at the intersection of embedded systems (SW&HW), programming languages, compilers, runtime systems and type theory. So if you know about any of these areas, it may suit you.

"resilience for all" by barbara brown wilson is one of the best books i've read this year.

i picked it up by chance from my local library because i'm interested in urban climate resilience. turns out it's a compilation of case studies on how underserved communities (in the US) increased their quality of life through grassroots strategies. the last chapter summarizes lessons learned.
