DISCnet showcase event

A couple of months after finishing my placement with Deckchair.com (described here), I was pretty delighted to receive an invitation,  by Prof. Seb Oliver, to give a talk at the “DISCnet showcase” event about the project. “DISCnet” is the acronym for “Data Intensive Science Centre” and it’s an STFC Centre for Doctoral Training. They basically provide PhD students with the needed training…

SPOT! A Computer Vision Project

By the end of my PhD my supervisor told me that there was the possibility to do a placement in data science, funded by DISCnet, with a company based in Brighton, Deckchair.com. The company works with HQ cams. They install such cams on the roofs of various hotels, that are preferably based in strategic (landscape-wise)…

The EPP Group Meeting at Sussex

The Experimental Particle Physics Group Meeting is held biyearly at Sussex Uni and it’s changed a bit since I’ve joined the group . The one I’m gonna be talking about was held the 29th of November 2017. Talks were divided into categories; faculty, post-doc, PhD, and 1st-year PhD.

Phenomenology Symposium 2017

The clue is in the name. Phenomenology, a.k.a. Pheno is an international conference which, as its own website says, covers “the latest topics in particle phenomenology and theory plus related issues in astrophysics and cosmology“. It was held at the Alumni Hall building (see picture, not mine, found on Google) at the University of Pittsburgh in, guess where,…

IOP 2017

The annual joint meeting of the IOP High Energy Particle Physics group and the IOP Astroparticle Physics group, better known as the IOP Conference amongst the UK physicists, took place in Sheffield this year, in particular, at The Diamond building of the University of Sheffield (see picture). A pretty nice building I have to say. Typically, the…

ICHEP 2016

The 38th International Conference on High Energy Physics took place in Chicago, 3-10 August. It was first held in 1950, it’s biyearly organised by the U.S. particle physics community and it brings together experimentalists and theorists of the world. It was my first international conference and I can tell that it was a great chance to…
