[Starting my PhD Next Week]

Added on 16/09/2012
Tags: swarm :: robotics


I have finally finished making my studio in Southmapton at least decently homey as I am starting my PhD programme on Tuesday. I met some of my classmates yesterday (Saturday) during a barbeque and I am very excited about our future discussions and beer drinking.

The first two semesters of my PhD will be attending classes that I have to pass in order to move forward, ending the school year with a summer project. The following three years will be the actual PhD project that I can see at the moment as involving biologically-inspired methods for task and energy distribution in autonomous robot colonies.

I will be staying in Southampton at least for the first two semesters but I am glad that I decided to keep letting my flat in Brighton as well, I just love the city too much to move away yet. So even though I will be spending most of the week in Southampton studying and (hopefully) doing some martial arts, I will always look forward to weekends when I will return to Brighton and have a walk on the beach.
