One reason things have been quite quiet here is that I’ve taken on a new role at work. I’ve just started as Head of the Institute for Astronomy, which is part of the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Edinburgh, but is based at the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh (right).
As you can imagine, it’s taking up quite a bit of my time. I haven’t really had much time to think about possible blog posts, let alone write any. I’m also helping to organise the UK Exoplanet Community Meeting, which is in Edinburgh and starts on Monday, and am trying to prepare the first section of an updated Astrophysics course, which I have to start teaching a week on Monday.
So, a rather busy time and will probably remain so for quite some time. I may still find time to write some posts, but it will probably be rather sporadic.
