👋 Hi, I'm Joe.
I'm a computational archaeologist and research software engineer at the University of Bern.
I use GitHub for software packages, research compendiums and various other projects. I try to work in the open as much as possible, so please be aware that many of my repositories are unpublished experiments, works-in-progress or abandonded ideas. Below you can find a curated list of my more 'mature' projects.
