A Typical Week

I wanted to give an idea of a typical week on this project – so why not last week. For more detail on the bullet points below see the attached video.

This account of my hours is intended to demonstrate a typical week on the project and I feel it gives a good idea of the spread between admistrative tasks, working on larger works or learning activities and documentation. Obviously the tasks of any one week will be different; with some weeks being a little lighter and some being heavier. For instance I took two research trips the week prior to this, each being an 8+ hour day and meaning that I worked 16 hours over just two days. Some weeks are more research focussed, others more practical etc. However, even accounting for descrepancy in the kinds of activities I’m doing, I am confident that this week just passed is good example of an average week, as I generally work 5 days a week between 9am and 3 pm with some light admin tasks on some evenings.
