Pinned oot

I post about my cats more than anything, I think.

I’m a machine learning (specifically neural net architectures) and music technology researcher. I do a lot of work with movement analysis and motion capture.

I normally keep the work of my photographer alter ego, Veronika von Volkova, separate, but on mastodon I post everything in one place.

You can read more about my research (and how Veronika fits in) in these interview chunks from a few years ago:

Non-reproductive sexual contact is only weird if people tell you it's weird. Intimacy that isn't restricted to two partners is only weird if people tell you it's weird. Kinda think maybe it's been a scam this whole time you guys

Okay if you'd be up for a London meetup gimme a shout

Probably a Sunday at the end of January, not at a techy thing but just like drinking tea and chatting with humans from the internet

Boosts appreciated

Been slowly working on a self portrait where each time I sit down and open it I think “needs more trees” and layer in some more.
Trees are my cowbell.

I wrote something for all my girlfriends I've been trying to get on Mastodon the last, like, FOREVER.

If you've had experience working with your doctor to document severe depression or similar issues for FMLA and/or disability certification I'd love to hear from you via DM. Boosts appreciated.

Ahhh, it is such a delight to once again have an evening of sitting around and liking everyone's cat photos. :blobsnuggle:

It’s Pekoe’s birthday!!! 💞🎉💞
This was the closest I could get to her sitting still today.

She’s a whole year old. Such a fancy kitten. 💞💞💞

Sorry I’m not around right now. I’m having to limit my screen time due to some health issues but I’ll be back when things improve a bit. Hopefully that will be soon. 💙💙💙

I haven't had a migraine-free day since Wednesday, and I'm having a bit of trouble keeping up. So if I'm not terribly responsive here that's why.
(I'm doing pretty okay mood-wise though, so that's definitely something.)

Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
