November 9th, 2017
Today marks exactly five years since I left EDIS and returned to study. It is also my last day here at AUT before I leave on the next journey.
I will be spending the next month at the Luleå University of Technology, right up near the Arctic Circle at the top of Sweden. Luleå is Scandinavia’s northernmost university. Dr Gulnara Zabelova and I have been working together on research projects for the last year and I finally get to go up and work with her there.
Apparently, I am the only team member who wanted to go up in their wintertime and they suspect that I am part polar bear. Jane will come up in early December and we are going to explore. Watch this space folks.
