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.

In June I visited Open Lab in Newcastle and presented my TEAM project to the research group. Open Lab is a cross-disciplinary research group in interaction design and ubiquitous computing. I met Janis Meissner and Reem Talhouk at prior conferences. As my research fits well with some of their projects, they suggested to visit them in Newcastle.

Last week, I attended the 3rd Suicide and Self-harm Early and Mid-Career Researchers‘ (EMCR) Forum in Glasgow, organized by Dr. Rory O’Connor and the Suicidal Behaviour Research Lab. There, I presented a poster of my ongoing study which aims to explore how technology could support young people who self-harm. While the study site is in Vienna, at my host institution, I now temporarily live in London to do a secondment at the Anna Freud Centre.

For my PhD, I am conducting (or at least trying to conduct) a clinical trial. That means I am seeing actual patients. Together with my supervisor, I have set an ambitious goal to gather 400 participants. 400 participants in 3 years, seems fair doesn’t it. But believe me, there is more to it.
