This Reasearch Log has been a bit quiet recently, but there has been a lot of internal activity. My research and my PhD application are at a point where I need to be careful about what I disclose. Talking to Malcolm, he advised me to discuss the question with any research vultures interested, but to avoid saying anything about how am I going to do try to solve the problems. At the moment, methodology is precisely the area I am looking at, hence the silence.
