page (I keep a private research log and diary where I record my thoughts about PhD and academia, but I sometimes share a very tiny slice of them there). If you are a student who wants to discuss struggles in academia, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Senior and fellow PhD students helped me tremendously when I felt the most devastated during my PhD, and I want to pay it forward.
