It wouldn’t be too much of an overestimate to say that we spend roughly 1/3 of our life working. I noticed as I was growing up that a majority of people I interacted with either hated their job or simply put up with it because they had to. That trend hasn’t changed much.
Needless to say, I never wanted it to be that way, for others or myself. But then I discovered the field of psychology during my undergraduate studies and I was enamored. Surely, I thought, if we understand the nature of human behaviour, we can somehow design work to be less dreadful. And then I discovered there was a whole area of research dedicated to this very idea: occupational health psychology.
Today, I am an aspiring academic (i.e., lowly graduate student) whose primary focus is on occupational health psychology.
With that said, I wanted a place where I could write about and share all the interesting things I read every day. You can find these posts on the ‘Research & Reviews’ page.
I also wanted a place where I could share tips, tricks, and hard lessons I’ve had when it came to learning statistics and how to use various statistical software necessary to advancing ideas in the social sciences. In sharing these, I hope to make things a little easier for individuals at various stages in their statistical training. You can find these posts on the ‘Stats Resources’ page.
