I am blown away by https://t.co/N0TCTx4ujf. Such a useful tool for research.

This in-browser graphical LaTeX tool gives you free-form drawing (tikz export), WYSIWYG rendering, symbol shortcuts, and even picture-based symbol search. I might even write full papers in this... pic.twitter.com/YjLCQWnJTi

My longest 🧵ever - about merit in academia, "campus-cancellation" & 1st amendment rights.
I expressed my disappointment w/@eapsMIT for inviting a specific prof to give a prominent lecture. Prof had essay against considering race in academic decisions & to only consider merit.

This is an incredible video—an ash explosion at Mt. Aso, the largest active volcano in Japan, taken this morning, Wednesday October 20, 2021.

This looks to be the first activity at the volcano since 2016. (As I write, @SmithsonianGVP is down.)

Finished the GR course. I really enjoyed it. Such a wonderful subject to teach. My lecture notes can be found here: https://t.co/b41WqZ93GW Hardly anything is original (mostly following @seanmcarroll and David Tong), but I drew lots of figures. pic.twitter.com/9risacFR0w

Apoyemos y luchemos por la Geología en los planes de estudios. Que no desaparezca. La educación sobre Geología es crucial para comprender nuestro planeta (y otros), con implicaciones muy importantes en todos los ámbitos sociales @IGeociencias @cgeologos @IGME1849 @sgeologica pic.twitter.com/ai1LLNhKtL

Now that it's public I can finally put this in a single thread.
Time to hear the story of TOI 1227b, a 11 Myr giant planet orbiting a very low-mass star (0.17Msun) that we nearly screwed up in a bunch of different ways and spent the better part of 2 years trying to figure out. pic.twitter.com/yIWEMd0R6M

Physics & math bachelors, astrophysics masters, and all but dissertation in my PhD program, and I still couldn’t for the life of me tell you what the hell an eigenvalue is

Writing about the DEI & outreach work I’ve done on applications feels wrong. They always want explicit demonstrations of engagement with URM, first-gen, nontraditional etc and I have plenty of examples but also I AM literally all of those things. It feels exploitative to me (1/2)
