News@SIOP – Summer Edition
Hi everyone! Today I am posting on behalf of previous SIOP YI-NET member Kathryn Demanelis (USA), check out her post about how she balances her diverse research interests:
I am not sure if I am the best person to write about how to balance research interests since I am generally interested in everything. My dissertation research examined two broad topics: descriptive pediatric cancer epidemiology in Southeast Asia and chronic cadmium exposure and its effects on the epigenome. Both of these projects were based in Thailand and focused on vulnerable populations. Otherwise, these projects are quite different and involve very different datasets, types of analyses, and research questions.
There are many ways of writing your thesis, depending on the subject matter, the regulations of your institution, and your own writing style (and that of your supervisors). So I’m not going to talk about the fine detail of sentence structure and whether you use active or passive voice.
