Until very recently I lived in the Azores. Since I moved there I noticed there was little concern about the impacts of the increasing tourism on the endemic-rich native forests. For the last 15 years, I have been developing monitoring methodologies for improving conservation of the natural areas, and I found that I could contribute to answer this question before the negative impacts settle in. I designed the project and got it funded as a PhD scholarship, which I am finishing now.    
What I will do after the PhD is a mystery that I will only get into once I finish it. I think that this was the last step of my full time dedication to contributing towards nature conservation, and now I will be looking for a new focus.

The covid19 test I did next door. Well&Work is so well figured out that I felt impelled to go in, and when Ben did the tour I discovered a solution to my problem. Because if there are people who can work from home and be productive, I realised I am not one of those.
I recognized an intelligent effort on so many levels about this place that makes it inspiring to work.

I have the fixed desk membership. I work hours on end on multiple documents and being able to have at least one large monitor stationed makes all the difference.

This friendliness vibe, the coffee quality (it shouldnโ€™t matter so much, but it does. (Have you seen a series called Comedians in cars getting coffee, from Seinfeld?), the working conditions, the aesthetics, the flexibility, the nuances of comfort that contribute to positive mood. For a workplace to work for me it has to feel a bit personal, and that happens here.
