Yesterday the whole day was devoted to student presentations regarding the Megacity theme. Each student  was allowed only one slide to share their thoughts on possible research topics. The results of this task will be up on the blog shortly.
At the same time, an informal discussion took place about what the research might present, the final product and the possibility of involving someone from the government in the project. Supervisors Laura Baird and Vadim Novikov tried to answer numerous questions regarding the theme, and also talked about different tools (surveys for example) one might use in exploring a specific subject. Afterwards, the students started to prepare for the fieldtrip around Moscow, which will be today, to gather impressions and thoughts about the city in the context of a megacity.

Describe yourself in 3 words.

I am a dreamer. I am very curious. And the third word… Well, I want to say that I am an artist; I don’t know if I have the right to say so, but let it be this way.
