To all of my fellow students who want to make the world a better place: I can highly recommend taking a look at the Effective Thesis website to find ways of increasing the chance of your research to have a (large) positive impact! Writing my thesis was a huge learning experience: I was learning how to conduct quantitative data analysis on-the-go and one of my main insights has been how subjective seemingly objective numbers can be (choices in how you analyze can drastically change outcomes). It was challenging though very rewarding - so I feel honored that my work has been published on Effective Thesis' website!
I highly recommend Effective Thesis' coaching service. The application process involves giving answers in some detail, but was worth it: my advisor came to our call with advice, contacts, and follow-up questions tailored to the information I'd provided. ET seems to have a wide network of experts they're willing to make introductions to. My coach was able to introduce me to more than one expert and several others doing adjacent work in space governance, a fairly niche research interest I mentioned on my coaching application. He also had some helpful tips on conducting informational interviews with senior researchers, and encouraged me to stay in touch for advising after the call.
It is quite humbling when your research is recognised by organisations like Effective Thesis. It encourages more researchers to identify societal problems more carefully, and keep attempting applied, actionable research.
Thank you Effective Thesis for the valuable coaching and for brining attention to our thesis. It was a pleasure working on this relevant topic together with my ever so engaged friend Kiryl Shantyka at Handelshögskolan i Stockholm.
