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.

"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 FUN @ IMT Fete 2014!

We had a wonderful time together during the IMT Party hosted at the Neuchatel Microcity. Here we are after a few bottles of champagne, wine, mojitos and food "from around the world".

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!

At the end of the day

It's winter and the weather gets colder when it is a time to say goodbye to most awesome people in the world...

So we keep our finger crossed and wish you guys best..

After eating delicious sweets, we start thinking that there is no regrets for goodbye, for friends are destined to meet again ;)

Goodbyes are in order

It is an interesting conundrum, when the person responsible for writing the usual farewell blog is also the person that has to say goodbye. Now, while talking about myself in the third person and saying goodbye on behalf of the lab definitely caters to my oversize ego, I will instead turn things around and take this space to talk in the first person instead.

I arrived at LASA in 2006, and since then I've had the opportunity of doing plenty of things, meet and get to know a lot of people, and had immense fun. I've compiled a quick list of things I did during my stay in the lab, which you can see below (click to get the proper size!).

It is always difficult to point to specific events in the time between my arrival and my departure, as events and encounters mix together in a non-linear set of multi-modal experiences that as a whole make up what I will carry with me as I go on. However it is much easier to think of beginnings and endings: I remember Florent (Guenther!) talking and joking from his computer while I set up lights to take the picture of the Hoap2 robot that still decorates the first page of our web side; I remember discussing with Sylvain and Eric about the merits of having multiple monitors while I set up my computer on a temporary desk in their office; I remember Aude telling me "talk with the gals and guys if you have any problems and you'll be fine" on my first day in the lab, which is an advice that I took to heart ever since (you might have noticed that :D).

And while memories are a fond luxury to dwell on, I've actually got pictures of what my departure has looked like!



Needless to say, I was touched and moved (and incidentally very well fed!) by your efforts, kindness and friendship.

So as a final note, good bye, fare well and see you again in the lab, in the city, at barbecues or elsewhere. I'm like bad weed, you won't get rid of me that easy…

Basilio out.
