It’s been a while

Wow, July 2014 was the last entry. What’s happened since then?

Well, I defended my PhD thesis in January 2015, in Valencia. Its title is A Silicon Strip Detector for the Phase II High Luminosity Upgrade of the ATLAS Detector at the Large Hadron Collider, which is a very long name for something as simple as some studies on silicon detectors that will be installed in ATLAS during the Long Shutdown 3, around 2024.

On a less happy note, a dear friend passed a bit before 2015. What was quite a shock since we had planned to visit her just a week after.

Anyway, time has passed by and life’s been going up and down like a roller coaster. Soon I will be leaving CERN on a special paid leave for 1 year, to work again in the ATLAS ITk Upgrade, with silicon detectors, at the University of Freiburg in Germany. I guess I needed this change both personally and professionally.
