A few weeks ago I attended a 2-day writing retreat organised by our project. Since this was the first time I took part in such an event, I didn’t have any expectations, or prior experience to compare it with.

In June I attended the SICSA (Scottish Informatics & Computer Science Alliance) PhD Conference, which took place at the modern (and very stylish) campus of Robert Gordon University, in Aberdeen. It’s a yearly event which brings together PhD students from Universities all over Scotland, academics and industry practitioners, for 2 days of workshops, keynote presentations and social events.

I’m about 15 months into my PhD but I am also a runner and about 9 weeks away from a marathon. I enjoy that running gives me a release from my academic work but I can also see a lot of similarities between the two pursuits.
