"I participated to my first IPSERA conference in 2007 in Bath. Since then, every single conference experience has been incredible, with a special mention from the hearth for the edition in Pretoria. The imprint that a community like this can leave on a person is just mind-blowing. I am not exaggerating if I say that the connections I made since that first IPSERA (Erik, Finn, Alistair, Katri, besides the Polimi team) and the ones who followed have largely influenced my career. I always thought that sooner or later I should have tried to give back, and now it seems the perfect moment. The IPSERA spirit is more alive than ever, and the association outreach has improved dramatically in the last years. Everything came naturally and I am super happy to be at service with great colleagues and friends from the EC and the community overall."
