Why did you decide to participate in PubhD Coimbra?

I had been going for a while: first to come and watch and second to participate. Then there was an offer, where they asked if I'd like to come and present, and I accepted immediately because I decided "this is the moment I'm going to participate"! It was something I had already hoped to do.

How was your experience in this edition of PubhD Coimbra?

The experience was very good. It was very funny to see the curious looks: I looked at the audience and thought I wasn't speaking Chinese, I thought people understood. And I also enjoyed seeing a lot of questions, meaning that I really got the message across.

Would you advise other colleagues to participate?

Of course! First, to come and watch, I find it quite interesting, and also to come and participate as speakers.
