First Day of PhD

PhD Day: 1
Date: 1 February 2024

What an exciting day! My first day doing PhD. So many new things when I felt so happy and challenged at the same time. James and I cycled for the first time there. Then I started meeting all the people who I met during my Masters at UCL. Many of them said ‘Is it February already?’. They knew I would be starting in February. I met my supervisor Prof Andrew Coates who is an iconic person in planetary science. I got my new MacBook Pro provided by the Lab and tried to login everywhere for an hour or so.


Despite these basic struggles I knew the structure for my thesis which is an amazing start:

  • Chapter 1: Data Analysis
  • Chapter 2: Instrument concept and simulation
  • Chapter 3: Lab demonstration
