Featured PhD Life Research

I’ve published in the BMJ, and other updates

I was rather excited when my first article was published in the BMJ last month. The article isn’t about my research, but rather about my experience of having a colicky baby, and the difficulties associated with being heard and getting a correct diagnoses. You can read the article here:

However, I have put my head down, and I’m now applying for jobs and writing a paper. No rest for the wicked πŸ˜‰
