Top tips for new PGs :)

Mentors,If you could give one piece of advice to our new PGs, what would it be?  Mine is - try at least one new activity when you get here; sports, creative hobbies, volunteering... There's so much more to campus than just studying and attending classes. :)

Taking a break from research learning how to play music ?

I feel a bit sad about the fact that I never had the real chance to learn how to play any instrument. My only experience was trying to play the violin, but I had only 6 months of training because my teacher at the time had to move to a different city.    was wondering if anyone of you guys know if Warwick offers some sort of training course for beginners

Lonely holiday?

Hi everyone I was just thinking about PG's who might be staying on campus or in accommodation over the holiday/ end of term break. I think it can be a lonely time if friends and peers go home or away for a few weeks. What can people do to keep sane? To avoid the Winter blues and keep socialising?

Hi there!

Pablo, here. I'm in the final year of my PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies at CIM. Currently I'm researching social and political aspects of blockchains / cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin in particular). That takes pretty much most of my time, but when I have some spare time I like to draw, and improve my (fairly poor) programming skills. You can usually find me at my office or at the Wolfson's Research Exchange trying to finish a chapter, a paper, an abstract, or whatnot. You can take a look at my we
