Welcome, web surfer, to my little corner of the interwebs.
Here I have collected a strange selection of things I found interesting to read, write, or do. If you want to read about my science, please head over to my more professional site, where I do things like
direct you to CVs and generally attempt to convince you of my competence, that might be more your cup of tea. Otherwise, read on!
- Articles: I occasionaly write things, it takes quite a lot of effort, so I put them here!
- Projects: Some old science projects I did, unrelated to my current research. Largely old pieces of coursework.
- Travel: For some initally good reasons, now slightly confusing to me, I've got a couple of my larger travels described here.
- Goodreads: I record the books I read here, mainly so I don't forget.
Some things from around the internet that I think you should read/listen to:
- Watching Paint Dry: A beautiful description of finding the sublime in the mundane. Changed my thoughts on science quite a bit!
- On Proof & Progress in Mathematics: A fields medallist reflecting on their relationship with mathematical ideas, really beautiful.
- This is Water: A famous commencement speech by David Foster Wallace, make broad, sweeping, and insightful comments about life.
- No Man is an Island: poem by John Donne, I think the message is very powerful, originally from here
- Watching the English: I find anthropology super interesting, and this time I'm one of the subjects!
- Burke's "Unending Conversation" Metaphor: a paragraph long reflection on the continuing conversation of the generations, originally from: here
- Hopfield's Now What: a good description of the search for scientific projects (and inspiration more generally) from an excellent scientist.
