ASMR Filter for Youtube

A browser extension to quickly filter ASMR content in or out of all Youtube pages. Useful if you use Youtube for both ASMR and non-ASMR content, and you'll like to keep them separate.

Chrome Extension


A dashboard to monitor the Valfredda creek: shows a live cam, automatically collects climate data and weather forecast, estimates flowrate and flowing stream netwrok length.

About me

Short bio

Hi, I'm Nicola Durighetto, a research fellow (RTDa) at the University of Padova, Italy. I am dedicated to studying the hydrology of non-perennial, headwater streams. My activities span environmental monitoring, data analysis, statistical and conceptual modelling. I have a Ph.D. in Sciences of Civil and Environmental Engineering. In my free time, I am passionate about coding and creating small apps to solve specific problems.
