We visited UNSW today – it is interesting to see such a difference in environment compared to ANU. UNSW is in a huge city so they have to build up, and space is at a premium. Space seems to be a premium at ANU (well, as far as I can tell from all the whinging academics) but we have so much open space which I actually really enjoy!

Apparently in Australia my research group works hard, but would be laughed out of the room in the U.S. – is there really such a difference between research cultures? Or is it that some groups/countries focus on *being seen* to be working hard?
