The importance of our families

The families of researchers and academics are integral to our wellbeing as well as to the quality and quantity of our work. Today, my PhD student Ben welcomed her family to Australia. They have come from Vietnam to live in Bathurst for 4 years while Ben completes her PhD. Welcome to Australia and welcome to our research family.
