This blog has no particular theme, it’s a haphazard mix of posts on physics, mathematical intuition, research outside academia and many other topics. I’ve assembled a few of the better posts on the Start Here? page.

I started writing under the name ‘drossbucket’, which seemed like a good handle for the kind of low-effort experimental nonsense I was writing at the time. But after a while my quality standards got higher and I also stopped caring so much about looking weird, so I started merging this back into my real-life identity.

So… my name’s Lucy Keer and I live in Bristol in the UK. I did a physics PhD, then worked as a software developer for some time before moving into technical writing. I’m on Twitter as @drossbucket and I’m currently experimenting with having a notebook blog, Notebucket.
