What is this? A list of things that didn’t work out for me.
I will try to be honest and update this page with research- and career-related failures as they happen. The first version was written in 2020 from memory.
Why is this? To increase transparency in academia, in the hope that this will make failures more normal and less painful.
Note 2. Many things that work out well involve a great deal of luck.
