A Better Place

“A Better Place” Blog consists of my words to support academic trainees – especially doctoral students, in all disciplines. Here you will find content ranging from practical tips, writing advice, tools of the trade, and philosophies about being in graduate school (and beyond) and also being happy! Becoming a contributing citizen of the world of knowledge is a fabulous way to grow your potential and make the world a better place. You can DO this!

On December 1, 2019, I renamed this blog “A Better Place”.

I believe that researchers are motivated by, and obligated to, make the world a better place. Along the way, let’s make your university a better place to work and grow. Maybe even let’s allow the space you really spend time – your mind, to be a better place.

(The fine print: While much of this blog will speak to many disciplines, there are differences in culture and practices. I write grounded in public health.)
