Week 84: Day of Research, and visitors from Australia

Tuesday was the first day of May, which, after months of waiting, finally brought with it the proper start of the cricket season in Cambridge. After four months of training in the indoor nets at Fenner’s, the evening promised the first play outdoors on a grass pitch of the year. However, this wasn’t with the… Continue reading Week 84: Day of Research, and visitors from Australia

Week 70: Burns Night at Trinity and Requiem at King’s

The week started slowly. I was still struggling to get Indy to leave the house; she’d come down with a cold and spent most of the time reading books on the couch. She would venture out for lunches and possibly dinners, but I elected to spend time doing what I would otherwise normally be doing.… Continue reading Week 70: Burns Night at Trinity and Requiem at King’s

As far as work goes, I spent the week just reading recent-ish articles on TeV-scale Higgsinos, but that was by far the less interesting part of my week.

She had prepared a large pot and didn’t want to eat through… Continue reading Week 24: My trip to Shippea Hill (and other shenanigans)

Week 22: Closing the Chapter (hopefully)

Most of my simulations finished on Monday morning, but some took days longer to complete. In the meantime, I tried investigating a point one of the referees had commented on to see if I could reconcile my results with some results from other works. I tried writing a script to plot the results, and when… Continue reading Week 22: Closing the Chapter (hopefully)
