I use Arch Linux on a Thinkpad X1 Carbon, with the i3 tiling window manager. I write software using neovim, usually in Python. For research, I use the following apps:

- Anki - Spaced-repetition flashcards, for permanent memorization
- Zotero - Organize PDFs effectively, with automatic metadata loading for arXiv and journals
- Logseq - Note-taking app with local file storage and graph
