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!

Very pleased with my presentation yesterday, but now I have a cold! Last day of the conference, very tired and looking forward to going home.

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?
