Expectations as a QES Scholar during the Mobility Period
My expectations are that, during the mobility period, I will work with the help of my mentor to properly develop my PhD proposal. Acquire in-depth knowledge in both qualitative and quantitative research techniques for my data collections and appropriate software’s for the analysis. I look forward to build my capacity in academic writing and publishing in peer review journals. I will learn better presentation skills to be able to better impart knowledge to my students and colleagues. Above all, the knowledge to be acquired will enhance my ability as a climate change ambassador.
