Emil Ole William Kirkegaard Scientist - Web developer/programmer - Polymath

About/contact

Born 1989 (so, age ~25). I am mostly self-taught in various subjects. Completed gymnasiet (≈high school) in 2009. I am currently an undergraduate student in linguistics at Aarhus University, Denmark. Basically, I just do it for the money and spend my free time studying whatever interests me.

I'm looking to do freelance work on web and code development. Let me know if you need some coding help.

The list below contains my main publications and is sortable in various ways.
