Today was my first meeting with Ryan as my mentor. It went well, it was fairly casual, we just sat in the cafe in the union and we sat around having a chat, asking Ryan questions and talking about our projects.
Mine and Katrina’s topics are reasonably similar, and i can see myself sharing literature with a few people so it will be a good opportunity to spread my research net.
The main issues people seemed to be having were similar to me, lots of issues with finding papers and journals, but Ryan said he would send a file with some good ones in. It was reassuring to see how everyone else was also struggling, one person had a draft but it wasn’t formatted at all, and we need to get a first draft in by Tuesday evening to Ryan.
