Happy New Year 2016 (by Diego Fdez-Sevilla)

Ourense Spain 2015 by Diego Fdez-Sevilla

Every time I need to think I take my camera and go for a walk.

Today 31 Dec 2015, well tonight (3 A.M.), the image shows you the view of my town Ourense with fog suspended over the river which divides the town in two, called the river “Miño”.

I wish you all a successful 2016.

I want to thank anybody whom has shared their thoughts and publish information allowing me to catch up with new developments in different fields of scientific and social repercussion because I believe that your contribution forms part of my blog.

I know that some of my ideas and approach towards environmental issues are not always compelling with yours in part or in their entirety. I value your input because it helps to contrast points of view in a field in which I believe that there are many unsettled aspects still to be understood. I hope that in agreement or disagreement at least my points of view are good enough to highlight gaps of knowledge even when I move away from main stream lines of thinking. Those are difficult to contrast or back up with references from previous works since many times I find out that none or few people have followed them. So here is where your contribution is so important. There is no positive or negative contribution, only constructive. I value any argument which allows me to understand when a line of research is not worthy to be followed any longer.
I have performed research for more than a year using my savings as the principal source of income in order to share something which I have considered more important than even make a persistent search for job positions.

I consider that I have already shared what I had to share about the most relevant issue in environmental sciences, our environment in itself. Temperature is only one face part of a bigger problem. Energy might be considered the box in which everything can fit-in but nobody really knows how it works. I hope I have opened some insides on how much more can be done applying this box to understand synergies between biotic and nonbiotic elements in our global ecosystem. My vocabulary might no contain the right expressions applied in each of your fields but I hope I have build a common framework to join efforts and work together.

If I have helped in any small way to accomplish this I am happy.

By prioritising the use of my savings above persistent search for openings I have reached an inflexion point and that no longer can be a prospect for the future, so if you know any opportunity where my profile could be suitable for a job position I would appreciate your input. Furthermore, in many selection processes it is common to be asked for referees having an opinion about any part of a career. If you find capabilities in my work which could be considered as assets in any selection I would like for you to consider be one of my referees in my applications. If you agree on that please mention it to me with a message and I will include your name and position in my cv when asked.

Thanks for your contribution and look forward for more interaction next year.

Wish you a Happy New Year 2016.

Bachelor in General Biology, Masters degree "Licenciado" in Environmental Sciences (2001, Spain). PhD in Aerobiology (2007, UK). Lived, acquired training and worked in Spain, UK, Germany and Poland. I have shared the outcome from my work previous to 2013 as scientific speaker in events held in those countries as well as in Switzerland and Finland. After 12 years performing research and working in institutions linked with environmental research and management, in 2013 I found myself in a period of transition searching for a new position or funding to support my own line of research. In the current competitive scenario, in order to demonstrate my capacities instead of just moving my cv waiting for my next opportunity to arrive, I decided to invest my energy and time in opening my own line of research sharing it in this blog. In March 2017 the budget reserved for this project has ended and its weekly basis time frame discontinued until new forms of economic and/or institutional support are incorporated into the project. The value of the data and the original nature of the research presented in this platform and at LinkedIn has proved to be worthy of consideration by the scientific community as well as for publication in scientific journals. However, without a position as member of an institution, it becomes very challenging to be published. I hope that this handicap do not overshadow the value of my achievements and that the Intellectual Property Rights generated with the license of attribution attached are respected and considered by the scientist involved in similar lines of research. **Any comment and feedback aimed to be constructive is welcome as well as any approach exploring professional opportunities.** In this blog I publish pieces of research focused on addressing relevant environmental questions. Furthermore, I try to break the barrier that academic publications very often offer isolating scientific findings from the general public. In that way I address those topics which I am familiar with, thanks to my training in environmental research, making them available throughout my posts. (see "Framework and Timeline" for a complete index). At this moment, 2019, I am living in Spain with no affiliation attachments. Free to relocate geographically worldwide. If you feel that I could be a contribution to your institution, team and projects, don´t hesitate in contact me at d.fdezsevilla (at) gmail.com or consult my profile at LinkedIn, ResearchGate and Academia.edu. Also, I'd appreciate information about any opportunity that you might know and believe it could match with my aptitudes.
