We are December. The end of the year. My PhD has officially seen two years and three months, a bit less than three more years to go. I am truly in the middle of it all, and I am enjoying every second.


The end of the year is the perfect moment for reflections, with this less philosophical one on a walk along the beautiful lake on our campus.

2015 brought me what I hoped it would bring: the publication of my second paper, one that I really like but that was not an easy task to get out there.

But 2015 brought much more. It brought significant progress in the two main papers that I aimed for in the next year. The first one is currently already under review, the second one – the one I consider my biggest story – should be delivered to my co-authors as a Christmas present.


That means 2016 will create time and opportunities for what should be my second biggest story, the project that will bring me to Amiens in the middle of January, and at least one other smaller project that I had not dared to put on the list for before 2017. Many of these projects have been growing over the past year already as well, and I am delighted to see that I will be able to realise more than I thought.

Again a lot of things to look forward to in the next year, and I invite you all to follow it with words and pictures via this website.

Thanks for following me!
