I will use my time at the Faberllull residence to focus on my doctoral dissertation proposal, which will serve as the roadmap for my doctoral research project. This is a key piece in my doctoral training – it outlines what I plan to do and how I plan to do it. I will attend the residence with a full working draft and use the time to solicit feedback on my project and, ideally, incorporate insights I learn from other attendees in the final version.
