CV of Failures

A summary of my non-accomplishments.

If you haven’t heard of Failure CVs, take a look at Melanie Stefan’s Nature article, this NY Times article, or Princeton professor Johannes Haushofer’s (edit: now at Stockholm University). I think it’s a nice way to remain grounded and to acknowledge the fact that rejections are a normal part of academic life that we don’t often present, especially online. In the spirit of these articles (and inspired by my recent NDSEG Fellowship rejection), here’s my CV of Failures, which I’ll continue to update over time along with my regular CV.
