I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Reading in Reading, Berkshire, England, United Kingdom. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

comment Post Doc in Norway research atmosphere
Here in the UK you spend more time writing proposals, that's not always the case. I work on a EU H2020 project that has been funded for 4 years, and I spend my time essentially doing research.

comment Extending Oyster card trip outside the Oyster card validity zones with valid ticket outside zones and without changing trains?
I'm confused — how can you travel from London if your ticket is only valid from the last Oyster stop (which is presumably at the outskirts of London)?

comment Did Hitler support zionism?
@Oddthinking I don't interpret the claim as being about motives. I am quite sure that Livingstone was referring to the Haavara Agreement, which can objectively be called support in the sense of helping logistically. What Hitlers motivation was is historically relevant, but I don't think it's essentially within the scope of the question.
