I am crafty, and love to knit, spin yarn, and sew. I also love growing our own food.
Music-wise, I listen to a lot of metal these days. My fave bands are Mastodon, Gojira and Between the Buried and Me but I love keeping up with new stuff too.
I live on land stolen from the Wurundjuri people, and believe that reconcilation should begin with treaty.
My account is locked but request a follow - unless you're a TERF or bigot, in which case you can get fucked.
I live with migraine and while not chronically ill, my attack frequency is defined as episodic - which means between 8-15 days per month. This means I don't qualify for a range of subsidised medication. As a result, I got organised and am on the board of Australia's only migraine patient organisation and am an advocate.
Pop-culturally, I love sci-fi (esp The Expanse) and am on the edges of the A Song of Ice and Fire fandom.
I'm a PhD student in Melbourne, Australia. I work on localising the Sustainable Development Goals in rural areas, and my sub-fields range from human geography and scenario development through to large scale dynamic modelling.
I'm a first gen Australian white cis woman with Hungarian heritage. My partner @cefiar and I are guardians of two ageing tortoiseshell burmese cats named Salome and Chrissy and we toot pics of them using #BurmeseLyf
Although hooboy, creature designers really love the threefold radial jaw opening schtick ever since Stranger Things (and Dune, I guess, who probably did it first).
Consumerism pondering, knitting related.
Teaching this trimester means my income will be more (not that I've been struggling) and I'm wondering if I should use some of that to buy a swift and ball winder. They aren't essential by any means, but it'd make balling yarn a heck of a lot less annoying.
I probably need a niddy noddy too, for making skeins.
A great new paper out today on co-designing your research with Indigenous researchers #sustainability #Indigenous #DeColonising https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs11625-021-01015-9
Trying to make the family data from the ABS QuickStats website make sense against the population data, and it wasn't. So I went to the Table Builder site to get the actual data and the reason it wasn't making sense was because the QuickStats website omits the "Not Applicable" option - essentially all the people who live alone or in sharehouses.
Someone has apparently just logged into the meeting room for my #SummerSchool talk, which was 12 hours ago. If that's you, I'm happy to share the recording.
Sustainability science PhD candidate. Obsessed with cats. Knitter & spinner. Vegetable gardener. Goth/metal. Living with migraine. She/her. May swear.
