Do You Have Children? Get in Touch!

If you are balancing research with parenting, you are not alone. There are plenty of us out there reading articles while a baby sleeps on us, or trying to focus despite the sounds of a small child tearing through the kitchen cabinets.

If this sounds like you, and you would like to share your experiences, wisdom, or warnings to other parents via Thesislink, drop me a line at You could be featured (anonymously, if you prefer) in a future post on postgrad parents.
