“Aurors are the Wizarding World’s best defence against the practitioners of the Dark Arts.” — Harry Potter

Today starts my adventure becoming an auror(a), unlearning the way I lead my career to learn new ways. Defending my path against my own (and other’s) dark arts.

I am a post-doc at the Astrophysical Research Institute, at LJMU and I have enrolled in the Aurora Program.

Today, half the LJMU Aurora cohort, met with Meriel Box, our LJMU Aurora champion. And she mentioned blogging and here I am giving it a try!

I am delighted I got the support from my line managers, Ian McCarthy and Andreea Font, the director of my department, Chris Collins, and that I was selected by LJMU, to embark in this adventure on becoming a better leader.
