what i expect
IN YOUR RESEARCH
Integrity & honesty. Always be honest with yourself and others, particularly when it comes to data and analyses
Justifiability. Ensure all the steps you take are justifiable / explainable
Perseverance. Keep going even when things get tough or boring.
Willingness to fail. We only release our full potential when we are willing to take risks. Not everything you try will work - that's ok.
Have fun! You get to spend all day following your own curiosity - pretty cool, eh?!
Respectful. Treat others (and yourself) with respect – everyone has strengths and weaknesses.
Independent thinking. If you are stuck, try to find the answer yourself if possible, practice thinking problems through on your own and with fellow students. I am your last port of call.
Wider involvement. Take advantage of wider activities such as seminars, journal clubs, conferences and outreach activities. Your ideas will develop, you will practice articulating your thoughts, and you will be exposed to a wider range of perspectives.
Direct your own meetings. As far as possible, these will be student directed, so come along with an agenda.
