Day 22 - It's all a matter of abstraction

Giovedì 22 Marzo 2012, 19:06

This has been a very long week at the campus, and it’s not finished yet. Briefing with the “indoor modeling”@EECS guys last Tuesday was illuminating. I think I’m starting to be part of UC Berkeley philosophy in its intimate essence: to look into things deeply and figure how they work out, without preconceptions. Guys are working on amazing themes...

Day 17 - My personal burger ranking list

Domenica 18 Marzo 2012, 05:36

Ok ok, I promise this (and maybe a couple of others more) is my last "not-so-serious" post. It's all about hamburgers, you know, I'm in the country of hamburgers, how can I be not fond of them.

Day 10 - Back to Pixar

Domenica 11 Marzo 2012, 20:31

Berkeley Campus is full of people, much more than I noticed previous times I came here. The Campanile plays its bell symphony every day at noon and at night it seems magical. This has been our last week end just before beginning research activities at UC Berkeley. Next tuesday I'll probably have my first talk at EECS, kinda thrilled!

We had luck enjoying a lot of sunny days since we came here!

Day 6 - A brand new start

Mercoledì 07 Marzo 2012, 04:58

So, after a very long procedure I ended up gaining my CalID badge, Airbear credentials, 2 (TWO) email addresses (one standard berkeley.edu, the other eecs.bekeley.edu) and a desk in 307 Cory Hall. Guys @ Cory are very smart and my host professor seems to be so prepared. But the real surprise was Thomsen family! We met in this side of the world Jim and Beth, together with Kate, Georgia and Anna. They were so kind to rent us a very nice apartment making us feel home. Thanks guys!

Day 2 - So, finally, I made it!

Venerdì 02 Marzo 2012, 14:49

After six years from my first visit to Berkeley, I'm back again, this time as a scholar at VIP Lab. From yesterday afternoon I'm officially enrolled as a visiting scholar at the EECS - Electric Engineering and Computer Sciences, UC Berkeley: such an electrifying experience! My host, professor Zakhor, introduced me to her staff, assigned me a desk in a wonderful lab and provided me with useful information on how obtaining magnetic badge and security credentials to access Cory Hall and IT stuffs (yes guys, I HAVE GOT A BERKELEY.EDU MAIL ADDRESS ALREADY WORKING!!!).

I will work basically on digital modelling and interoperability of geometrical spatial data acquisition: very nice. The expected result is gaining as much experience as possible in quick surveys to embed knowledge in a fast-built "Chinese box".

 

This great adventure couldn't have been possible without the brave persistance of my sweetheart, Luisa, visiting scholar too at IURD.
