Hi there! I'm HDE, a PhD student in astronomy. I plan to do research on pulsar timing and fast radio bursts, focusing on detecting gravitational waves and identifying FRB progenitors. I also enjoy long-distance running, crosswords, hot chocolate and a good book, though usually not all at once.
I'm an elected moderator on Worldbuilding, and a pro-tem mod on History of Science & Mathematics, Mythology, and Astronomy. In bygone days, I moderated Interpersonal Skills.
He/him pronouns, please.
A small planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse
