Even though there have been some major negative and positive bumps on the planning route, that really has nothing to do with our stay in Singapore, I have now started to prepare some new lectures for the course Physics for Computing. This course is going to be the start of my co-teaching experience at NTU […]

According to the recent US News Education Ranking, NTU’s Computer Science, as subject, is ranked no. 3 in the World, before MIT, Stanford, Harvard and Berkeley. I must say that I feel a bit honoured to be chosen to work at the School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE) @ NTU next semester. It will be a […]

There are currently a lot of airlines flying to Singapore from Europe, including Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Qatar, British Airways, Lufthansa, Finnair, Turkish Airlines and many more, and the prices are quite fair. Having experience from most of these airlines, I decided […]
