Research, writing, and career advice

Wow! I had written more than 30 advice posts over the last decade. 

When I was writing them, I was hoping to first help myself. You see, I understand a concept well only after I think about it in depth, distill it to a small set of principles, and connect it with my existing knowledge-base. Writing helps me achieve this, so I write on things I want to understand better.

These advice can also help you by showing you what to expect as you take on new projects. You can get a head start and avoid costly mistakes by learning from someone who had traveled down that road. 

I selected 21 posts, and categorized them as Research, Writing, and Career. Enjoy!
