Sorry for the lengthy delay. This period of research is a slow one; I've finished with my old data set, and have papers slowly working their way through the pipeline. I've also started on the new data set, and will have a new paper ready to submit soon!
The news that I do have to update you with is that I've just returned from a fabulous work trip to the USA. I presented my PhD thesis at Northwestern University to the Medical Social Sciences Department and the Department of Preventative Medicine, and went to the International Academy for Sex Research Conference in Chicago. The conference was a great experience, where I met a lot of leading researchers in my field, and shared new and exciting ideas with new friends and colleagues. I was lucky enough to be selected to present a poster at the conference, so I also received some great feedback on my research.
I've just had a paper accepted with revisions, so I'll be able to share those results with you soon. I also have another study under review, and one to be submitted shortly! Still early days on my final study for my PhD, but I'm very excited to share all of my findings with you here in the future.
So just another note to let you know I haven't forgotten about you. Just waiting for the academic world to catch up with my enthusiasm for research, so I can shout my findings from a mountain top.
All the best,
