Hey there! I'm HDE 226868, an undergrad studying astrophysics and mathematics. My current research involves ground-based gamma-ray astronomy, focusing on high-energy emission from blazars.
I'm an elected moderator on Worldbuilding and a pro-tem mod on History of Science & Mathematics, Mythology, and Astronomy, and a retired moderator on Interpersonal Skills. I also participate on a number of sites elsewhere on the network.
Oh, and I run, program, listen to music, design crosswords, blog, and play board games, when I have the time.
