Loose note-taking and personal logging
- You may have noticed the ‘Journal log’ tab above. Here's what that's about and why I keep one
- I listen to a lot of music. I wrote a FAQ explaining a bit how and why.
- Here are some of tools and tricks I’m using to ease my workflow at the command line.
- Pedro Tiago Martins and I wrote a bash/shell beginners course. It covers most things you need to get you started.
- My solutions for the 2022 edition of Advent Of Code 2022, along with comments on each.
- I wrote some passing thoughts about hybridization and social cognition, with a very brief word about the importance of spatially-aware Population Genetics.
- Molecular archaeology has a nice ring to it. Why don’t we use it more?
- I once presented a poster with no text in it. TL;DR: not worth it, but it revealed to me how a poster works deep down as a scientific communication and networking tool.
- Not a new take, but: scientific excellence is often code for underfunded research, at least in my experience as a scientist in Spain.
- I’ve written a few words about why researchers keep travelling to in-person conferences, despite the vast mayority being aware of climate change. My opinion is that it boils down to money: funding, future job opportunities, etc.
- Leaving academia: the good and the bad
- People confuse Ecology and Climate Change too much.
- Some days ago (in August 2022) there was a major debate over twitter on the climate change community, on the topic of
collapse. Activists, scientists and policy-makers gave their opinion. I found the debate interesting and compiled a summary of their positions, threads and articles here
It’s been a year since I started reworking this website. Here’s a couple thoughts on 2022:
Other resources I’ve found useful in the past
- Check out Pedro Tiago Martins guide to LaTex if you want a begginer-friendly entry to LaTeX. I still refer to it from time to time for doubts.
- Swirl is a great R package to learn eveything from the basics to statistics. I’ve learnt a lot with it, and I fully recommend it for anyone who wants to get into R , even for those who have never coded.
