The Fediverse is great thanks to things like the hashtag. Here goes mine!

I can help with:

- Baking: bread and cakes including sourdough

- Academic writing: LaTeX and bibliography management

- College level mechanical engineering (I teach at uni!): vibration, noise, structures, material properties and the like. Also numerical methods, specially finite elements.

- Spanish: I'm a native 😊

Feel free to ask about anything and I'll try to help.

Now that I'm reading so many I realised that I never introduced myself here!

I'm a researcher in applied mechanics, blogger and home baker. I'm obsessed with sourdough bread and free software and paint and knit whenever I can.

My objective for 2018 is learning to play the mandolin :D

Music Monday! This week, artificial harmonics. Some weeks ago we saw natural harmonics (, but artificial/pinch harmonics sound different and are produced in a very different way. It's not that easy to find examples because most I could find combine these harmonics with other techniques, so it's a bit hard to tell apart what is a harmonic and what is the other techniques.

See examples in the next post.


Me at 18: I don't understand this electromagnetics thing, but who cares, I'm going to specialise in mechanics.

Me now: *works in magnetic damping*

Ey, @xosem, ¿esa gh de tu nick es por la gheada? 🤔

The sunflower is about to bloom and now it's more noticeable that it follows the sun.

I go every couple of hours to stare at it and say aloud "hehehe it's turning".

Hey, Fedi! How is it going?

I'm knitting a toe-up sock, enjoying the beauty of the courgette flowers and trying to simulate magnetoelastic interactions using finite elements.

Music Monday! This week, harmonics. Normally, when playing guitar and other string instruments, you produce notes by pressing a string against the fretboard (then plucking the string).

However, if you put your finger _on_ the string, without pressing it towards the fretboard, then pluck, you get a "harmonic" (long story:

These are notes that sound very "airy", almost like bells. You have probably heard them before! See examples in the next post.

Music Monday! This week, Saxophone metal! In case you didn't know, "metal" is an extremely rich and varied genre. "Saxophone metal" is not a real subgenre, though, sorry! That said, I wanted to showcase several bands that (a) feature sax or other wind instruments in some songs, and (b) sound pretty different, while being all metal!

Buckle up, this will be a mini-thread.


A friend gave me seeds as a birthday present some months ago: onion, melon and aubergine seeds.

Now one of the aubergine plants is producing a flower. I'm very excited, I've never seen an aubergine growing.
