I am the web master of SoDoC for the second year. Well, to be honest I am just an enthusiastic of technology and my programming/web designing skills are below basic. I was also part of SoDoC board 2 years ago as NOVA representative.  “Web master” is a way to learn something new and contribute for SoDoC to reach the PhD and Postdoc students’ interests. I am also the representative in the Equality and Inclusivness Committee.
