Which preposition is correct in the following sentence?

The first paper of my thesis indicated issues in these patients' ongoing care. Therefore, I continued my work by/with/on analysing these patients' rehabilitation.

  • It depends on the context, and there are other prepositions that might be appropriate, again depending on context. You need to give us, as a minimum, the rest of the sentence and possibly some of the rest of the paragraph.

1 Answer 1


I continued my work on X implies that X was already the theme and you carried on with it.

Your paragraph suggests that initial research prompted you to study a new aspect of the topic, so I think by would be the best option.
