As for all researchers, my schedule is very variable. I usually arrive at 9, but if I have very long experiments I get in earlier, like last Monday, when I arrived at the PRBB at 7:30 in the morning and took this picture. It is hard to set an early alarm, but in exchange you often get to witness beautiful images!
Apart from the excellent quality of the research, the good atmosphere of co-operation between researchers, and the wide range of conferences and training activities, my favorite part of the PRBB is the location. To see the sea every day from work is precious and I really value it. I also enjoy the most recreational and social activities organized by the PRBB: I am a volunteer at the Open Day and a member of the PRBB choir!
Of the PRBB I would highlight the excellent quality of the research, the good cooperative atmosphere, and the wide range of conferences and training activities available, besides the location!
I’m not sure it is a motto, but in my house we always said that “that who does everything he or she can is not obliged to do more”. This helps me to move forward when something has not gone well, but at the same time it forces me to try my best in everything I do.
