Conference on the Azores

I have spent the last few days on the island of Terceira sitting at the Seismology of the Sun and the Distant Stars 2016 – Using Today’s Successes to Prepare the Future Joint TASC2 & KASC9 Workshop – SPACEINN & HELAS8 Conference. I presented some results from my most recent work in a poster entitled “The influence of rotation on the asteroseismic fingerprint of slowly pulsating B (and Be) stars in the Kepler field”. Besides the science, we watched the Portuguese go crazy and celebrate all night long after their national team won the UEFA Euro 2016, and we also got to see a bit of the island itself thanks to a guided tour on one of the afternoons. The coolest part of this was undoubtedly a visit to the Algar do Carvão, an ancient lava tube or volcanic vent located in the central part of the island.
