My name is Bouke Jung. I’m studying particle physics at the University of Amsterdam. This year I will travel abroad, for an internship with the KamLAND-Zen collaboration at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan. Since I will be away for an extensive time, I hope to be able to give some regular updates on my life and work in Japan through this weblog.
Besides personal anecdotes — of which I will undoubtedly gather many throughout the year — I intend to share stories about the experiment I’m working on and the fascinating physics and ideas which lie at its foundations. Furthermore, I hope to be able to give an overview of what research in Japan entails and how life and work in Sendai might differ from (or be similar to) what a Dutch physics student is used to.
Of course, suggestions, topics or otherwise, are more than welcome. So feel free to comment at any time!
