Dissertation done

It struck me that this news might be worth reviving my slumbering blog for: I have finished my dissertation and handed it in November 1! The dissertation is based on four papers published in different contexts and includes a long-ish introductory part reflecting on the main themes of the project. A short summary can be found on the “PhD project” page on this site.

It was and is a strange feeling – I’m happy that I got this far in the process, but at the same time I sort of miss the bubble-like self-centeredness and immersion of especially the last six months. Writing the thing was actually a good experience and I hope to be able to find that kind of focus again amidst all the other responsibilities of life in academia (well… life in general).
