Graduate studies can be an exciting and rewarding opportunity to learn new skills and advance your career. It is also often a time of stress and anxiety due to new academic challenges, financial worries, and performing original research which can involve failed experiments and unexpected setbacks. With so many faculty and students in our department, personal and academic conflicts sometimes arise. For advice see this Field Guide on how to navigate working with supervisors and other students on research projects.
