I am happy that you made it to my blog!
My aim with this blog is to have a kind of diary about the life as a PhD-Student (and probably also beyond that as a scientific assistant). I want to share my experiences about collecting data, evaluating them, writing publications and the every day struggle with all of those. Maybe I will also find some time to go deeper into scientific discussions and I am always happy about feedback. This includes of course scientific feedback, if you think that I published some total bullshit and the reviewer is also wrong, than let’s discuss about it!
I am a fan of open-access publication (and open source in general) and will also talk about things related to this kind of publication and other “academic-politics”-related issues.
To add up some extra spice, I want to show some of my best photos every now and then. I am a passionate nature photographer and when I find the time for it, I am crawling around in meadows to search for insects or plants, go on hiking tours to see the most awesome landscapes or explore different kinds of “experimental” photography.
So, let’s hope to have some fun together here!
