Lasa

Goodbye College...Hello Job!

* What will you miss the most from your time at LASA?"

Felix: Two things:

First, getting to work with so many different systems: arms, hands, sensors, software architectures, etc... It's great to be presented with a new system: first you use and understand it, then you master and improve it.

Second, and more importantly, getting to work with so many people, each with their own unique expertise. Finding common ground and going into new directions is a great pleasure.

 

* What advice can you give to new PhD students?

Felix: Implementation on robots is just like investing: get the fundamentals right and you're sure to be successful in the long term.

 

 

 

"Do you remember the happiest moment of your intership?"

Yue: Saw the robot running as you wanted it.


"Do you remember the saddest moment of your intership?"

Yue: saw the robot not running as you wanted it.

“Is there anything you would like to do that you haven’t done yet?”

Yue: Yes, I would like to put the learning from demonstration part into my work, which was possible because of lack of time.

Yue: “If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?”

I think if I could have defined the project more clearly, earlier, I could have a better result.

Farewell the most positive person I've ever met.Yes, her name is Ajung Moon.

"What was the happiest moment of your Phd life?"

- It's coming... I can feel it... Getting my PhD will be the moment I think.

"Do you remember the happiest moment of your Phd life?"

- There are several moments other than the one I am expecting (see above). A very consistently happy moment comes the day after I put down “Do Nothing” on my task list for a day and actually followed through. Guilt-free 'do nothing' time is much more enjoyable than time spent doing nothing without intending to do so. 

“If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?”

- I would have signed up to stay for the full year (and a month) first time around. ;)

“What’s surprised you most about being a phd student/Postdoc/Professor?”

- The fact that the world doesn't wait for you to finish your PhD, and that your life shouldn't wait for you to finish your PhD either.

And they said, there is always hope

Is there anything you would like to do that you haven’t done yet?

Dr. Shukla: Own a boat.

If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?

Dr. Shukla: I'd contact myself and tell me to not be shy or afraid of the consequences. Instead, go for it.

What will you miss the most from your time as a PhD student in LASA?

Dr. Shukla: The unlimited traveling opportunities.

What advice can you give to new PhD students?

Dr. Shukla: There is always hope, there is always a way.

                                               Of course...You've already missed Satellite and all the nice times we had there together....

What do you feel most guilty about?

Dr. Shukla: Leaving in a hurry with things unfinished.

What’s surprised you most about being a phd student?

Dr. Shukla:As a PhD student, you think you have time, until you don't.

Farewell Seungsu

High purposed we shall traverse realm on realm,
cleaving to none as to a home,
the world of spirit wishes not to fetter us
but raise us higher, step by step.
Scarce in some safe accustomed sphere of life
have we establish a house, then we grow lax;
only he who is ready to journey forth
can throw old habits off.

--hermann-hesse --

"What was the happiest moment of your Phd life?"

I think the happiest moment of my PhD is when I finished my private defense and heard the result from the members of jury. I was so happy about the result and the feeling of completing the 4.5 years of study.

Seungsu, I will definitely miss seeing your head from above the computer screen while working! All the best for the next steps! --Sahar--

LASA Family

In family life, love is the oil that eases friction,
the cement that binds closer together, and
the music that brings harmony.

An advice from the wise man

         

What's the most difficult part about being a professor?
I think I have not yet faced to the difficulty. :)
So to speak, how to manage the time.
Actually, I have not had enough time to do research since I have been a professor.

 

What advice do you have for phd students? About their future career and their phd life.
As for your career, I think "Ph.D" itself is just a kind of license and there is no farther meaning.
It is much more important what you want to do after finishing Ph.D.
Now, you should enjoy your Ph.D life!
As for your Ph.D life, you need to get really into the research, then the results will follow!

They say Belgians are the best...

Last friday saw the end of yet another short but very enjoyable stay from a visiting fellow researcher.

The latest temporary arrival to the LASA was Tim Waegeman. In but a few weeks, Tim managed to settle in, get to know the people and partake in the idiosyncracies that make the lab feel unique. (Plus turns out he's almost more of an apple fanboy than I am!)

So thank you Tim, good luck, fare thee well, and 'till next time from the LASA!

Tim
