    Hi there,

    I’m an researcher in astrophysics. I have achieved my PhD in the Netherlands before moving to Budapest (Hungary) for two years. From October 2019, I will move to the European Space Agency (ESA), back in the Netherlands, for 2-3 years.

    Researcher means many various duties. Of course the main task is centred on analysis and interpretation of data. We regularly read, write and even review scientific publications. Some other qualities, like team management or teaching are also useful. But all these skills get acquired on the spot. Research is a continuous learning process.

    If you have any question about research in astronomy and astrophysics (how to get there, what are the advantages and drawbacks, etc), feel free to contact me.
