Given the certainly very unique situation caused by the current corona pandemic, I decided to set up a little live blog to document the next couple of weeks representing a mixtures of home office, home schooling, home day care and whatever is yet to come …
Yesterday, I officially finished my habilitation at LMU Munich by picking up my diploma. So from now on it’s not just Dr. rer. nat. it’s also Dr. habil.
My last deed in the process, I did already on 5 February with a scientific debate about my main research topic: “Searches for new physics in signatures of long-lived particles”. Hopefully soon, following some more paperwork, I will also have my venia legendi and be a Privatdozent for experimental physics at LMU Munich.
Looks like I actually had some vacation during and between the holidays :) I got my new 16″ MacBook just before Christmas and finally some time to play a (computer) game I had on my list for ages: FEZ. It’s a beautiful, multifaceted, tricky, creative, crazy fantastic puzzle skill game done by Polytron I bought in a Humble Bundle quite some time ago. Certainly one of the best games I have played so far .. and I’ve played quite a a few (in the past).
Finally having a graphics card again (was broken on my 2010 MacBook), I might try a few more games from my (waiting) list .
Luckily I also had multiple chances to see ATLAS this year, due to the Open Days preparations as well as several outreach projects we are working on, from more professional underground virtual visits to a 360 degrees virtual visit to the cavern.
