Thus, am currently a Joint Postdoctoral Researcher at German Institute for Global and Area Studies (GIGA), Hamburg and German Development Institute (DIE), Bonn.

Strongest memory from Sweden:

The strongest of them was when I had the privilege of meeting and talking with a Nobel Prize Winner in Economics – Oliver Williamson during his guest lecture at Lund University.

Another strong memory was when I did an oral examination for course (Mathematical Statistics/Survival Analysis) at Mathematical Centre. It was the first time to do full exam of a course orally.

I will never forget the gesture of my host Supervisor (Prof Gote Hanson) who came all the way to Copenhagen 6th September, 2009 to receive me at the airport when I arrived. It was first and lasting impression.

Stay focused. Maintaing a close and healthy rapport with your supervisor is highly recommended. There are lots to learn, which may be very useful for your future life pursuits even after returning to your home country.

Take your time to have classes related to issues which are specific to Sweden, such as the Swedish welfare state and the country’s initiatives regarding gender equality. It is great to learn about these topics in the country where they have been put in practice.
