Robert Seaborne - Inside Academia
Robert is currently a postdoctoral fellow at University of Copenhagen and, besides his interests in research and academia, has a real passion for trying to improve the appreciation, awareness and culture surrounding academic mental health and wellbeing. During his PhD and early postdoc years, Robert found himself burdened some of the subconscious pressures and stressor that exist within the academic industry. These quickly developed, having a big impact on his wellbeing. Having spent a few years trying to understand and interpret his experiences he has founded Inside Academia as a platform to help instigate a change in the culture of health and well-being in the academic world. Roberts talk will delve into his personal reflections, the mental health landscape in academia and what tools/strategies could help equip us to navigate this journey more positively.
