Week 33: Day of Research and Cycling to Ely

I received an invitation fromĀ Matt Lemming to his house for a dinner party with several other Gates Scholars on Wednesday afternoon. Given time after work, I rode down to his house on the other side of town, where he had prepared a wholesome meal of curry. We sat around and discussed many a topic; at… Continue reading Week 33: Day of Research and Cycling to Ely

Week 32: Elections and Trinity Hall Formal

The week began with a rejuvenated spirit following my trip to Yorkshire. As per usual, the weekdays were filled with the usual schedule of working, lunch, seminars and dinners, but I was working on producing a calculation rather than reading papers, which spurred me on a little. In particular, I was looking at trying to… Continue reading Week 32: Elections and Trinity Hall Formal

Week 21: The week everything went wrong, plus #GatesGivesBack and antipodean snacks

I should have been satisfied with my work this week; my additional simulations finished on Sunday morning, but it instead turned out to me a tormentous. In theory, all that should have needed doing was to copy my results from the server onto my computer and run the scripts I had run hundreds of times… Continue reading Week 21: The week everything went wrong, plus #GatesGivesBack and antipodean snacks

Week 20: Partyyy and Snow

At the start of the week, my simulations were still running. Many had finished, but some had been held back waiting for space available on the computing clusters, so I spent much of the week going through dark matter theory. My supervisors wanted to know how the calculation of the relic density works; put simply,… Continue reading Week 20: Partyyy and Snow

Week 19: Back in the rhythm of things

For the first time since the end of the Michaelmas term, things have finally started to settle down into a meaningful rhythm again. There are no more visits from home on the near horizon, nor are there any more multi-day trips planned. It’s time to get seriously stuck into some project work. Of course, that… Continue reading Week 19: Back in the rhythm of things
