My blog in Catalan
This is Miquel Duran, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Girona. I contribute almost daily to my blog Edunomia (in Catalan) where I write about Higher Education, Social Networks, Science Communication, and other stuff. Since September 2018 I have been writing Weeknotes. Here you will find an overview of my career, interests, projects, activities, and schedule. Besides my personal blog Edunomia, I contribute strongly and often to website #magsci on our Project on Magic and Science. In 2019, because of #iypt2019, I contributed to a weekly game with the Periodic Table: #52gamespt. A whole collection of #52gamespt and many posts of #magsci are written in English.
For 2020, I am opening a new series of posts on applied artificial intelligence, and also on quantum computing. Those posts will feature games and magic tricks whose goal is to make complex concepts more understandable. They will complement our earlier efforts to explain complex concepts in science using analogies, metaphors, and magic.
I am affiliated with the Institue of Computational Chemistry and Catalysis, within research group Theoretical Chemistry, Modelling and Molecular Engineering. I am also a member of the Cathedra for Scientific Culture and Digital Communication
