I am trying to write an academic essay. But I am stuck in connecting two sentences. I want to find a substitute for the meanwhile connector because I have already overused it in the other parts of my essay. Could you please kindly let me know an academic-friendly suitable synonym or another connector.

I have already checked online but I couldn't find much information googling. Really appreciate your help
