The summer of a Landscape Architecture PhD student

With such a busy schedule and intense periods of academic study, it’s hard to imagine that a PhD student gets a summer holiday at all. But one way of seeing the world whilst continuing the intense pathway to a doctorate is to combine studying and research with travelling, as Landscape Architecture PhD student Anastasia Nikologianni has done this summer.

Anastasia’s busy summer schedule kicked off on 7 June with a trip to Barcelona to see the Landscape Observatory and its Olot Headquarters, along with a range of other landscape projects, with the trip lasting until 4 July.

However, the Greek student didn’t have much time to relax once she had arrived back in Birmingham, as she then jetted off to the Netherlands, visiting the project of Lent in Nijmegen as part of the Room for the River landscape project all over Holland, a government design plan surrounding flood protection and the environmental conditions in the areas around Holland’s rivers. This trip lasted from 8 July until 3 August with a two-day trip in Berlin integrated as part of the Climate KIC board.

Climate KIC is Europe’s largest public-private partnership focused on climate innovation to adapt to climate change, they are also funding Anastasia’s PhD. Anastasia enjoyed a slight break from the travelling before she prepared to jet off to Frankfurt for the PhD Summer School by Climate KIC on 24 August. This was the final destination of her summer trips, with the theme surrounding Green City Frankfurt: Shaping Transition Pathways for a Future Economy, lasting up until 5 September.

Anastasia now continues her PhD studies, progressing onto her second year of academic study.
