SKYTECH Welcome to my Meshes

Call me!

Skyman and Schrödinger Who am I?
Tough question.
My name is Andreas Skyman and I was born the 1st of November in 1982. I was until recently a physics major at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. In my fourth year I followed the Complex Adaptive Systems programme, an international masters programme here at Chalmers, which joins computation, mathematics, physics and biology in an interesting synthesis. I have interests beyond this of course. Some are listed below. You can also find my master's thesis and CV down there. I am now enrolled as a PhD-student, studying Turbulent impurity transport in tokamak fusion plasmas.

Some interests of mine:

  • Capoeira!
  • Being a fan of Douglas Adams
  • Reading books*
  • Writing
  • Phantasy Star
  • Roleplaying*

    I have also studied Japanese at A-levels. (Yes, I do watch Anime occasionally, but I prefer Manga.)

    What about this site?

    Nothing much really. I just thought an open web-directory was boring. I might add some more content at some stage, but not right now. =)
    What you can find thus far is listed below.

    Odds and thingamajigs by and about me:

  • Clustering and collisions in stochastic turbulence is the title of my M.Sc. thesis. The code it is based on can be found here.
  • My CV in Swedish* and in English. (They're probably not up to date...)
  • Are you a Turing Machine? Find out here* (in English here).
  • Thought the Copenhagen Interpretation was the only one? It isn't!* (more, in English, here; this is still my only cited piece of academic work... Here is a neat movie illustrating the process.)
  • My contribution to the Phandom: Fanbook Translation.
  • I like languages! I consider my English to be very good (for a non-native speaker) and I also know German, Norwegian, and some Portuguese and Japanese.

    (!)FAQ:

    Q: Do you write everything in LaTeX?
    A: Yes, almost everything -- posters and presentations included -- and before you ask: because it's the best!

    Q: Which Editor do you use?
    A: Why, Vim of course! It's the most competent editor I know + it can be made to work with Git, LaTeX and all manner of things if you like. Here's a nice tutorial: A Byte of Vim.

    Q: You seem like a nice guy, can I contact you?
    A: Sure, mail me.
    My GPG-fingerprint is: D99C FE47 1718 8F97 1B50 6484 10AE 99CE 23FF F662
    Please note that Chalmers has changed its mail system. Instead of the @dd.chalmers.se and @student.chalmers.se suffixes, please use @chalmers.se or @gmail.com instead!

    Q: You suck and I want to scold you, can I contact you?
    A: Sure, mail me.

    Q: Any other ways of contacting you?
    A: Try ICQ. My UIN is 8059663. I am also an avid user of Skype, and you can find me on MSN as well, though not with the adresses above (try @hotmail).

    Q: Your site is very boring. Why is that?
    A: Because I'm lazy and I don't really care. If you want more design then goto this page, which was also made by yours truly.
