I am an astrophysicist at the University of Bristol, and use emacs on a daily basis for writing papers, lectures, and notes; for organising my tasks; for filing documents; creating web pages and coding. I am a pragmatic user of emacs and not an expert, but have been using emacs for about 15 years, so have picked up a few tips and tricks along the way.
