The world continues to be a bit crazier than its usual self… but there is nothing like a beautiful crispy winter morning to make my day a little brighter.
I am very happy to share my research presentation at ModRef 2020. I presented my first paper at ModRef 2011 when I was a master student and I loved being back again after so many years.
One of those things that have been in the back of my mind for a very long time is hearing Åsa Cajander talk about leadership courses. I’ve heard her talk about how useful and inspiring those courses can be, and she even wrote a blog post about how many leadership courses she has taken!
My daughter and I read together during Read for Books 2020. Read for Books is a Singaporean charity book drive that aims to raise awareness of reading. For every 10 people who read for 15 minutes, 1 book will be donated to the children beneficiaries.
My welcome interview has just been published! I am very happy and proud to be part of the Bioinformatics Research group. I have been here for almost 2 months now and so far, so good. This is fresh and stimulating environment and I’m looking forward to all the amazing things we’ll do in these two years.
I am very happy to announce the first publication by WISDOM! Please take a look at our white paper titled Promoting Gender Equality and Inclusivity in EURO Activities.
During my latest meeting with my career coach we started talking about actively and purposely taking some time off. It turns out that I need social activities to be able to disconnect from work, but staying close to my laptop and phone all day (so I can talk to people!) is not exactly helping me relax. Given that it’s not exactly easy to meet my friends for coffee right now, I commited to try some of the other things I used to do to relax and ended up having a lovely weekend. The goal was to actively do something to rest, instead of simply trying to wacth some TV, chatting, and letting time go by. I went running/walking with my daughter, cooked a little (the french toasts were great!), knitted a little, and read a little (finished “The Forking Trolley: An Ethical Journey to The Good Place” by James M. Russell, which I can recomend!, and started “A Short History of Nearly Everything” by Bill Bryson, which is quite fun so far).
My daughter and I read together during Read for Books 2019. This time we read mostly books in English, which included “Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?” and an Atlas. I guess it’s difficult to know what a child might like…
My daughter and I read together during Read for Books 2018. I hope we can participate again next year!
Well. Finally got around to
putting starting to put this website together.
