'I really want to learn as much as possible'
Ingrid Lubbers regularly retreats for an hour to the mothers' room at Lumen. Not to express milk but to play the violin. She is actually a part-time PhD researcher in the soil biology chair group and a part-time student at the music school in Utrecht. Not that she intends to be a professional musician. Although... 'It depends how things work out. But standards are extremely high these days. If you are not incredibly good, or practise for six hours a day, you won't make it.' Six hours a day is too much to expect of a PhD researcher. Even with access to the mothers' room.
