Setting I am a graduate student in a quant/informatics group (size = 2 people: my advisor and I) housed within a larger academic group that do wet laboratory/bench research. I have my own project independent of those in the larger bench research group.
Problem We often get requests from the bench researchers for some data analysis. My advisor has been passing all these ad hoc requests to me and I do duly comply.
Anticipated consequence If the current pace of requests continues, I think that my PhD project will suffer.
What actions should I take and why?
