First of all, let me say start by saying: Happy New Year 2018! ☺
Interesting facts: Did you know that the number 2018 has only 4 divisors? These are the numbers 1, 2, 1009 and 2018. Interestingly, the sum of all these numbers gives us 3030. I can't really imagine how the world will look like by the year 3030, can you? In 2018 we also commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War (1914-1918), in which the Allies (France, Britain, and Russia) defeat Germany and Austria-Hungary (the Central Powers).
The year 2017 was an amazing time for learning new things, meeting new people and traveling to new places. In particular, during 2017 I established a new personal record, since I stayed in 4 different countries (Czech Republic, Sweden, The Netherlands and Spain). Scientifically speaking, 2017 was also a very fruitful year for me with 3 new publications, and 11 new citations. I attended a very interesting Workshop on Phylogenomics and also my first international conference (the 2017 Congress of the European Society for Evolutionary Biology) in which I obtained the Second Best Poster Award. Will the 2018 be a (even) better year? Time will reveal.
Here is my 2018 new year resolution: to write a new entry into this blog at least once a month.
Hi, I am Santi. This blog series was mainly created to include a summary of each of my publications. However, this blog is also a place where I will write about science and my life as researcher in the field of evolutionary biology.
