The first year of my PhD has almost gone. I’ve spent 10 months here in Télécom Bretagne – Brest and it has been amazing! From the scientific/academic point of view I feel like I’ve learnt many useful things. My project is working out fine and I’ve just submitted my first publication (on croise les doigts!!). Concerning more personal achievements, I’ve met wonderful people and made really close friends… it won’t be too difficult to keep in touch, since we’re all staying more or less “close to each other” thanks to thousands of stages, internships, new PhD projects that are about to start in the next months. World is not big at all and we’ll meet again, for sure 🙂
Starting from September, the second year of my PhD will be entirely spent at the LIRMM Laboratory in Montpellier. It seems like it will be a brand new experience for me, after these two years in France my lifestyle will change a bit… basically, no more University Campus but apartment in downtown (Contact section is already up to date)! Let’s see what happens… in any case, this first year has been wonderful and I’ll always make treasure of such experiences.
See you soon, Brest 😉
