Having worked with researcher developers and conducted training for fellow postgraduate researchers (PGRs) throughout my PhD, I have gained a strong understanding of the common issues faced by PhD students, and developed novel methods and practices for addressing these challenges.
I myself have recently completed my PhD (January 2021), and am therefore ‘near’ enough the experience of current PGRs to offer personal understanding and empathy for the difficulties of doctoral research, as well as practical suggestions for completing the programme with greater clarity and ease.
I offer training in two key areas:
Interactive workshops offering PGRs practical, creative methods to deal with the ‘messier’ aspects of doctoral research and to find greater researcher wellbeing and work-life balance (read more)
If there is a specific training you would like to offer your PGRs, I would be happy to discuss your requirements with you further and develop a bespoke training for your institution. Please get in touch or email firstname.lastname@example.org
At this time, while most universities are still maintaining a blended approach to teaching, I am happy to conduct training for your institution both online (using Zoom) or in person.
