"Increased heat and humidity potentially threaten people and societies. Here, we incorporate our laboratory-measured, physiologically based wet-bulb temperature thresholds across a range of air temperatures and relative humidities, to project future heat stress risk from bias-corrected climate model output."

New blog post on loneliness and time spent alone in daily life!

This provides insights into how loneliness and time spent alone change in relation to gender, age, and relationship status (single v partnered).

One finding: it's not about gender. It's about age and relationships.

We also found that the relationship between being alone and loneliness is different across the lifespan.

New post on my Substack, Sociological Infatuation.

What is the sociologist's duty in a world of publishing cartels, paywalls, and AI generated gibberish taking over the internet?

(1/n) Heads up/PSA/reminder for stats folks.

Almost misinformed my PI about a key variable the other day after stumbling into this little bit of computational profanity:

#rstats #data #datascience #research #stats

This confirms it's not a syntax issue:

#rstats #data #datascience #research #stats

(3/n) @academicsunite #rstats #data #datascience #research #stats

It's worth noting that both #dplyr and #datatable will save you from this. I prefer the #tidyverse.

Very proud to have contributed to the #paper led by Tamara Ben-Ari et al. from @labos1point5 analysing the ~ 130 000 #academic #travels from ~160 #research units in #France over 2019 and discussing their #carbon emissions. Most importantly, the paper reports various #mitigation strategies and quantify their potential for reducing their #CarbonFootprint.

Mitigation potential of modal shift from plane to train as a function of distance. Vertical lines correspond to median time travel by train and rectangles express the uncertainty related to train speed, with 150 km/h±60 km/h. The three numbers indicate key routes in France with 1: Paris-Toulouse, 2. Paris-Montpellier and 3. Paris-Nice, contributing respectively to 14%, 7% and 16% of total domestic GHG emission from air travel.
Percentage of total (plane, train, car) travel-induced GHG reductions from single or combined options. Colors represent the intensity in GHG mitigation potential with yellow options offering the greatest potential. Each column corresponds to a specific modal shift policy, characterized by a threshold distance(and average travel time), below which a complete shift from plane to train is assumed. Modal shift options are always applied first. Each line corresponds to a specific air travel moderation policy applied at research unit scale. Moderation options are expressed in missions (equivalent to a round trip) and modal shift are considered per segment (equivalent to a one way trip). Options which correspond to actual per-capita per-year research unit median are presented at the third modality in each moderation option (i.e.,1 conference every 3yrs, 1 trip every 4 years, 5,800 km and 1 trip per yr).

New blog post on my recent paper on loneliness. We used the Electronically Activated Recorder (EAR) to get a gold standard observational measure of spending time alone in daily life. We compared this to self-reported loneliness. Punchline is the graph I included at the end of the article.

Whenever I explain my at Google into mobile text editing, I'm usually met with blank stares or a slightly hostile "Everyone can edit text on their phones, right? What's the problem?"

Text editing on mobile isn't ok. It's actually much worse than you think, an invisible problem no one appreciates. I wrote this post so you can understand why it's so important.
