I have not been writing to the blog for approximately 2.5 years. That period overlaps with the birth of my second child, pandemic, and absence of research funding – all the reasons for prioritizing family and grant writing above the blog writing. At the moment, there are no barriers to blogging, as I have the MSCA fellowship, some vaccine protection, and my adapted to a nursery.
I am now returning to that blog for several reasons. First, it is the right place for summarising research activity. Foremost for myself and close colleagues. Second, I feel the need to communicate science-related thoughts and emotions, especially in changing the working environment (from Tartu Univ. to Copenhagen Univ.). So, I am back!
