Right now I’m a 4th year PhD student at Trinity College Dublin, studying Condensed Matter Physics. My blog is about trying to start honest discussion about the many poor aspects of academic conferences, and to explore why we don’t talk about these things. In my experience these feelings and dislikes of conferences are extremely common within academia, but we only ever talk about it openly when we’re with people we’re comfortable with and usually after a drink or two.
