Back in 2015, I created EvoDevo_Papers, an automated account that tweets the latest research papers in the field of evolutionary developmental biology (or evo-devo). I was inspired by the FlyPapers Experiment and the pioneers bots @fly_papers and @phy_papers. I wanted something similar for the evo-devo community to keep up with the literature and discover interesting […]
Last week, I joined the MeMoDEvo Symposium in Paris. The name stands for Mechanics-Morphogenesis-Development-Evolution. And indeed, it was a great meeting about all of these things! The participants had quite diverse backgrounds. From biologists and physicists to computer scientists and engineers, as well as theorists and philosophers. During the mornings, we had “unconference” sessions where […]
After a first try back in 2020, I’ve recently migrated my account to my new social handle (@bruvellu) and started using Mastodon again. I’m excited about it. Migrating away from Twitter (and other corporate social silos) will be good for the web in general and for science communities in particular. Here’s my introduction to the […]
I’m pleased to announce that my short video A Sea Biscuit’s Life is now available on Labocine at https://www.labocine.com/films/a-sea-biscuits-life. The sea biscuits are joining the Science New Wave!
The Science New Wave is a movement to reimagine science in the cinema. Its manifesto states: Culture is Science. Science is Culture.Diversity Feeds The Ecosystem.Experiments Become Cinema.Structure Dictates Function.Science & Story Never Collide.We are all messengers. Traits from the Science New Wave manifesto. I learned about the Science New Wave from Alexis Gambis, a biologist […]
UNESCO released a recommendation last year with the first international framework for open science policy and practice. This is something every researcher and institution should be aware of and strive for. Science is an amazing endeavor, but it can be more diverse, inclusive, and fairer. The four pillars of open science Open scientific knowledge (publications, […]
Fly Station is ready for the #LNdWDD @mpicbg
Recently, I had the honor to be interviewed for the Portrait of Science. It’s a beautiful project created by Magdalena Gonciarz to get to know the people who do science (aka the scientists). Check out the project’s Facebook page!
I wrote the introduction of my PhD thesis as a series of blog posts.
