About

A little about where this site is coming from

I’m a research student at The University of Melbourne, but the views that I express on this site are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of the institution in which I study.

I started this blog so I can tell you about interesting tools that I had discovered that I thought might help you to write your thesis.

Why Thesis Monkey?

The URL thesistools.com was already taken. I thought, who else uses tools? I vaguely recalled that maybe monkeys use tools, I checked the web address thesismonkey.com and it was available. I have since discovered that chimpanzees are more likely to use tools than monkeys, but chimpanzee is hard to spell.

Also, I like to think about why we procrastinate. There’s a monkey metaphor to be had there. I’ll get into in a future blog post.
