My June

I know, it’s not over yet. Though I’ve got quite a lot to tell you and I’m afraid I won’t if don’t do it right away.

#1 The most important one

I did it! I submitted my doctoral thesis! It took me almost 5 years to run those 11 EEG experiments, to write them up, and in the meantime to have a child. This thesis is thus a summary of my recent professional life. It’s a  milestone and the end of an era. I am excited and, at the same time, scared like hell to move on.


This thesis was possible only because two wonderful people decided to put their trust in me. Dear Carsten Eulitz and Aditi Lahiri, you are the BEST scientific supervisors and mentors one could wish for! I am grateful for your time and advice. It’s been an honor to work with you! And we still have three papers to publish together 🙂

The procrastinator that I am, my “right now” has been put off for over more than a year: let’s wait till I’ve submitted the first paper/ written the Introduction to my doctoral thesis/ found a good photographer/ made some free time… There’s never going to be the best suitable time for anything. We are the ones to decide where and when we stop and start doing something else, new to us, no matter how scary. So, I decided it to be the first day of the New Year 2014, so to say, the welcoming of two Newborns.

Here you are, Ladies and Gentlemen! Meet “The Artsy Scientist Diaries”.

Happy New Year! Let all your dreams come true!
