Chris Aris is a PhD candidate at the University of Kent in the UK. In this week’s episode, we discuss grad school survival strategies, mental health, the differences between the US and UK grad school systems, choosing the right path for you, and some of the things we wish we’d known before we went to grad school. Plus, teeth and sexual dimorphism!
