Side note - I don’t think I have to give much background to what I will be writing about. If you clicked the link with its distinct title, you probably already know. Usually we write this blog in third person, mostly because it's administered by a handful of us and we like to try and keep things serious and sciency, but for the purposes of this post, I will just write it as “me”.
It has been almost 40 years since the great physicist Richard P. Feynman wrote: “In physics the truth is rarely perfectly clear, and that is certainly universally the case in human affairs. Hence, what is not surrounded by uncertainty cannot be the truth.” I feel like this quote captures how I feel, so much so that I might as well begin with that.

So about “me” – my name is Elza Linina, you may or may not know that for the past year I have been a part of the student chapter board. For me it has been full of surprises and unexpected events. But for now we’ll focus on the annual SPIE Optics + Photonics conference in San Diego, CA. As you can probably tell by now – I was the one awarded with chapter officer travel grant and had the opportunity to go.

I wish to thank SPIE for this great experience, my chapter for granting me the opportunity to go to San Diego and all the lovely people I met there.
