I’m back in Uppsala after the most amazing course, filled with 40 enthusiastic PhD students and fantastic lectures from around the globe. Olga been talking warmly about this course since she went and it was all true!
It’s been really inspirational to have discussions with my fellow PhD students and to witness lecturers who where in many cases the best in their fields explain how animals interact with and perceive their environment.
We also got to visit one of Lund University’s field stations, the labs of the visual group, the labs of the Pheromone group, the amazing wind tunnel and (as Olga mentioned) Falsterbo bird observatory.
All and all I’m a little sleep deprived, really happy and filled with much needed new inspiration. A truly fantastic trip that hopefully results in some future collaborations.
