Dr Kristen Barratt

Postdoctoral Fellow
ANU College of Health & Medicine
Types of mentoring: 
Academic

I believe mentoring is important because everyone needs guidance to get them where they want to go.

I am an Early Career Researcher who still remembers how difficult and draining finishing your PhD and transitioning from PhD to a research career can be. I have experience managing difficult interpersonal relationships, implementing and adapting to new projects, successfully and unsuccessfully applying for funding opportunities, and finding thesis writing motivation. I have unofficially mentored numerous students within in my laboratory. I also whole-heartedly advocate for a work-life balance – something that I did not personally appreciate during my PhD but wish I had a mentor who did.
