Week Ending

I’ve spent most of today involved in interviewing prospective PhD students for our new Centre for Doctoral Training in Data-Intensive Science run jointly between the universities of Bristol and Swansea which I advertised on here just a couple of months ago. I spent most of Monday in Bristol meeting representatives of industrial and other businesses, who are offering placement opportunities for PhD students on this new scheme. This activity is taking up quite a lot of my time these days and it’s not over yet as we haven’t yet finished the process of recruiting students which has to be done in connection with our academic and business partners.

I’ll be in Cambridge for the first half of next week, on external examining duties, and then the following week we have our little workshop on Random Fields. People generally think that, once our undergraduate lecture courses are finished and associated examinations are marked, we are free to do research until October. If only. There are many other things to be done.

Anyway that’s enough for this week. I’m off to the pub for a pint. Have a good weekend!
