Welcome to the PhD Life blog!

My name is Sofia and I am the editor of this wonderfully enlightening site. This blog is part of the Research Exchange at the University of Warwick. Our hope is to create an online PhD community not only for Warwick students but also for anyone and everyone in this lovely world of ours who identifies with any of the following: pre-PhD, PhD, post-PhD.

This blog runs with the help of its incredible contributors, and that could be YOU! If you have any insights, comments, suggestions, questions, stories, feedback, jokes or musings about your PhD experience, we want to hear from you!

We all know that writing a thesis or dissertation can be overwhelming at times, but a blog post should be anything but! We welcome entries from any research area and any research stage, so stop thinking about it and get in touch with us now: pgcommunity@warwick.ac.uk, @ResearchEx or via the comments section on this site.

Are you too busy to write a blog post but would love for us to cover a specific topic? Then send us a message and we will make sure to get the conversation flowing.

I am looking forward to the year ahead as your PhD Life blog editor, but mainly at getting to know you via your stories.

Endure and enjoy!
