South Australia Trip: Day 11 – Pichi Richi

On our second day in the Flinders Ranges, we packed up the Troopy and were ready to eat our breakfast when we noticed a problem. The fridge in the campervan had been set to -14 degrees Celsius, and all of our milk and yoghurt had frozen solid. So, without having breakfast, we turned off the… Continue reading South Australia Trip: Day 11 – Pichi Richi

Week 83: The cold of Stratford-upon-Avon

The week really began on Wednesday, following on from our trip to the continent over the previous weekend. The daytimes were once again spent working at the Cavendish, building towards a meeting with my supervisor on Friday. I was focussing on printing out a series of plots to show the work that I had done… Continue reading Week 83: The cold of Stratford-upon-Avon

Week 59: Oxford Real Tennis and St Alban’s Signal Box Trips

Workwise, my week was one of the most productive since Orientation. I did a lot of work getting my model implemented into the new code that I was using, which required a bit of maths to reaffirm that I knew exactly what I was doing. But as always, the exciting parts of my week happened… Continue reading Week 59: Oxford Real Tennis and St Alban’s Signal Box Trips

Snowdonia Trip – Day 2: Ffestiniog Railway

When we walked in, we heard a station announcement that the train to Aberystwyth had been cancelled between Birmingham and… Continue reading Snowdonia Trip – Day 2: Ffestiniog Railway

2016-17: Year in Review

The conclusion of the Orientation trip to the Lake District brings with it a moment for reflection and contemplation. For one, it is the culmination of months of work on a massive project which now leaves space to focus on new tasks. For another, it marks twelve months since I moved to Cambridge from Australia,… Continue reading 2016-17: Year in Review

Denmark Trip Day 1: Copenhagen

My plane flew in to Copenhagen late on Saturday evening. Arriving on time, I went through the requisite Schengen border check and found my way out to the Copenhagen Airport railway station. Somewhat obscurely, the next stop of the trains in the other direction was across the bridges to Sweden, but instead, I headed for… Continue reading Denmark Trip Day 1: Copenhagen

Week 24: My trip to Shippea Hill (and other shenanigans)

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. To begin, on Monday, Jacqueline and I were invited over for soup cooked by Annalise. 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)
