Clarissa's blog emphasises the crucial role of mentors throughout various stages of a research career, from PhD students to senior leaders. Clarissa highlights the benefits of mentorship in offering career guidance, new ideas, and a chance to reflect on one's path with the insight of experienced academics. She suggests seeking mentors both within and outside one's field and underscores the importance of having a good rapport. The blog also touches on the unique challenges faced by female academics, advocating for mentorship as a way to navigate these challenges and encouraging researchers to actively seek mentorship opportunities.
Dr Clarissa Giebel is a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Liverpool and NIHR ARC North West Coast. Clarissa has been working in dementia care research for over 10 years focusing her research on helping people with dementia to live at home independently and well for longer, addressing inequalities that people with dementia and carers can face. Outside of her day work, Clarissa has also organised a local dementia network - the Liverpool Dementia & Ageing Research Forum, and has recently started her own podcast called the Ageing Scientist.
