About this place

Hello, internet person! My name is Thomas Jollans, and this is my website. I don’t do much with it, but there’s a blog which doesn’t see a lot of love, so that’s something.

You may know me from the world of nano-optics, as I recently got my PhD at the Single-Molecule Optics group at Leiden University. You might also have seen me lurking around the GNU/Linux, open source and Python communities.

But let’s be real, chances are you just know me as some rando millennial on Twitter.
