I am a postdoctoral researcher in physics, interested in using Elgg to create a platform for scientific collaboration on the web. See http://quantumcollaborations.org for my experiment in this direction.
I am developing Elgg plugins to help with this. Specifically, I want to write a more wikified version of the Pages module, a bibliography module that integrates with bibtex, and various tools for authoring papers in LaTeX on an Elgg installation. I am also interested in developing simple widgets and plugins that integrate with the APIs of websites that physicists use for their work, e.g. arXiv.org, slideshare, sciVee, etc.
