Yes We Canberra?

Filed under: Going Places — terence @ 2:16 pm

Well, all going to plan, Jo and I are moving to Canberra. Me to do a PhD; Jo to work. I’ve still got a couple of administrative hoops to clear before the PhD is 100% confirmed but I’m definitely looking forwards to the chance to study and learn. While at the same time feeling perturbed by the task in front of me.

And, of course, the key uncertainty is health. Or, more specifically, my health, field research and developing countries.

We’ll see how we go…



  1. Omigoodness! Seriously?! Exciting!!

    Hope it goes really well for you both. I miss you guys! xo

  2. Thanks Nikki. We’re both definitely excited, as well as a little anxious. And missing you too. The Wellington development community isn’t quite the same without you.

  4. Thanks Simon. The short explanation of the research is formal and informal institutions in Solomon Islands. The longer explanation – maybe I could offer that over a coffee sometime over the next few weeks?
