Welcome! I am an elementary particle physicist by training and right now a "nomad" by choice.
Currently I carry out research without any academic affiliation. I work on physics studies that require only data analysis, and look out for new things.
"Require only data analysis" means working on a laptop. During the last year I took this opportunity to travel slowly and spend a few months in each of places I wanted to visit - - the "nomad" part.

For me, the most ironic token is the plaque signed by President Richard M. Nixon that Apollo 11 took to the moon. It reads, 'We came in peace for all Mankind'.
As the United States was dropping seven and a half megatons of conventional explosives on small nations in Southeast Asia, we congratulated ourselves on our humanity. We would harm no one on a lifeless rock.
