Science & Travel

Fermilab, Batavia, IL, USA

Visiting Researcher (October 2019 – April 2020)

I am in love with this place! Best workplace ever. Best vibes. Great building and atmosphere. Great mix of people from with different backgrounds. Very inspiring place. Neutrino Socials and Vine & Cheese seminars. I hope that one day I’ll be able to work here again.

Tuorla, Finland

Big Sky Earth Training School 2018: Big Data in Simulations and Observations (November 2018, Tuorla Observatory, Finland)

Smoke sauna + frozen lake swimming. Interesting low sun, and short days. Great museums in Helsinki! Very expensive. First observatory I visited, that has its own cave.

Gran Sasso, Italy

15th International Symposium on Nuclei in the Cosmos (June 2018, L’Aquila, Italy)

Most amazing food every single day. Beautiful mountain and my first time in the underground Gran Sasso lab.

Belogradchik, Bulgaria

XI Bulgarian-Serbian Astronomical Conference (May 2018, Belogradchik, Bulgaria)

Home away from home, friends, great food. Huge Belogradchik rocks, driving in a 4×4, strange Magura cave with even stranger tour guide, who has crazy theories about cave paintings.

San Sebastian – Donostia, Spain (Basque Country)

Big Sky Earth Training School 2018: GPU–based analytics and data science (April 2018,
Vicomtech Research Center, San Sebastian, Spain)

Great food (I’m in love with tapas!), extremely relaxed and beautiful city with old buildings, sea, nice beaches, and of course very famous sculpture “The Comb of the Wind” by Eduardo Chillida. Also, home of the Clásica de San Sebastián cycle race since 1981.

 

 

Keele, United Kingdom

ChETEC Year 1 Main Action Workshop (Oktober 2017, Keele University, United
Kingdom)

A lot of people from Turkey in Stoke on Trent (which are the only ones on the streets at night), great (mostly empty) pubs with even better beer, great old buildings, and a lot of very nice people. Also visited – Manchester. Amazing city, great vibe, and it felt like home. Also the best small airport with huge pub and all of the people waiting to board their plains sitting in it and drinking.
