Welcome to my Meshes
Updated: 11 Jan 2012
Who am I?
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:
I have also studied Japanese at
A-levels. (Yes, I do watch Anime occasionally, but I
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
Odds and thingamajigs by and about me:
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.
Clustering and collisions in
stochastic turbulence is the title of my M.Sc. thesis. The code it is based on can be found
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?
(more, in English, here;
this is still my only cited piece of academic work... Here is a neat movie illustrating the process.)

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
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
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.
