Research Thoughts

…are the thoughts I am having right now as I am a guest researcher at the Nordic Africa Institute this month. Much goes along the lines of:

  • How do I operationalize my messy theory section into something that can be tested?
  • When do I find the time to re-read a methodology book like VanderStoep and Johnson 2009?
  • Should I move Chapter 4 to just after the introduction?
  • Do I need to redo my focus group coding in Dedoose?
  • What is a (free) alternative for SPSS? (PSPP it turns out. Tried SOFA too and loved the interface, but cannot do regressions with it?)
  • Where did my morning go?
  • What exactly should I put across during my research seminar on June 25th?

In between thinking such thoughts I drink much coffee, wander in the Botanical garden outside my window and talk about the same stuff over long lunches and dinners with friends.

Yes, life could definitely be worse.

Sharing is caring!
