Heading Off

Posted in Biographical, Maynooth on September 9, 2019 by telescoper

So here I am, then, Head of the Department of Theoretical Physics at Maynooth University.

I’ve even got a sign on my door to prove it!

More to the point I’ve also got a calendar full of meetings!

This morning was my first ever meeting of the Faculty Executive for Science & Engineering. The most exciting part of that was that I managed to leave my umbrella behind when I left.

After that I had a number of meetings with students to discuss the results of the recent Repeat Examinations, go through scripts, and give advice on progression. I also met with the new Head of the Department of Design Innovation to discuss the module in Physics & Mathematics we teach for them.

Coming up shortly I have a Euclid telecon (for an hour).

At the crack of dawn tomorrow I’m heading off to Edinburgh for the day to examine a PhD thesis.

Busy busy busy. And term hasn’t even started yet!
