I have been a lurker and avid reader here for a long time[when?] before I started editing. Most of my content writing is focused on chemical elements and their isotopes, as well as broader topics within the scope of nuclear physics. I also participate in maintenance work, including vandalism fighting (recent changes patrol) and participation in deletion discussions at AfD and RfD, along with minor copyediting when I see an article in need. Anything that helps the encyclopedia is worth doing.
I use the username ComplexRational only on Wikimedia projects. Anyone else on the Internet with this or a very similar username is almost certainly not me.
My English is closest to en-N or en-4+ in generic or colloquial writing, though I could possibly reach en-5 in some niche topics with which I am very familiar. The 1 I give myself in Italian is for writing and speaking, but my comprehension when reading Italian sources is probably closer to a 2.
Any and all feedback is welcome at my talk page. I am always open for discussion, but should I be particularly busy in real life, it may be several days before I respond. If I make any mistake or dubious judgements when reverting, tagging, etc., don't hesitate to inform me there.

- ... that a research group led by Amnon Marinov claimed in 2008 that the unknown element unbibium could be found occurring naturally in thorium deposits?
- ... that radiation from radon-222 and its decay products is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States after cigarette smoking?
- ... that there may be an island of stability with so-called magic numbers of protons and neutrons?
- ... that polonium-210 is 250,000 times more toxic by weight than hydrogen cyanide?
- ... that because the half-life of beryllium-8 is less than 10−16 seconds, there is a bottleneck in stellar nucleosynthesis that limits the abundance of heavier chemical elements?
- ... that a railroad bisects the Italian town of Miramare di Rimini into a residential neighborhood and a prominent tourist area?
