Hi there, I am Enrique Morales Orcajo. I am an engineer, scientist, and traveler based in Europe.
This website is the home of my life’s work. I write about science and how to deal with it. The central question I’m trying to answer through my blog is, “How can we have more sound scientific judgments?”
In order to answer that question, I uncover the latest scientific tools and explain it in a way that you can easily use. As I share these professional hacks for consuming and digesting science, I like to link them with other disciplines such as personal knowledge management and just-in-time knowledge management, so we can tease out the benefits of implementing these processes in a practical way for our daily life.
My specific focus is on how to collect and organize scientific studies effectively for the general public.
I believe one of the best ways to change the world is in getting a well-informed society: start with yourself and work your way out from there. If you get yourself better informed, then that is one less person for the world easy to manipulate. You’ll be in a position to contribute rather than consume. You will add knowledge rather than misinformation.
I write about the tools and systems of how to get sound scientific judgments. Systems because they make effortless the habit of digest science. Tools because they help us be more efficient, taking care of routine tasks and leaving room for more creative work.
But I don’t merely write about things. Along the way, I like to try out the concepts for myself as I experiment with new hacks as an engineer, scientist, and writer. In the end, my work ends up being one-part storytelling, one-part academic research, one-part personal experiment. It’s a colorful blend of data stories, academic science, hard-earned wisdom.
The primary place that I share this information is through my free newsletter. You can sign up below. You’ll only get information on how to find, collect and retrieve scientific studies for your life and work. Nothing annoying or unexpected.
I don’t claim to have all the answers and I still have a lot to learn, but I’m happy to share what I’ve learned along the way. If you’re ready to learn how to read science and get it on hand when you need it, then enter your email address below and click “Get Updates!”
