This event is aimed at graduate students who are entering the research focused phase of the PhD program. We will discuss how to get started on research, the role of an advisor, how to choose one, suggestions for how to use your research time effectively, how to prepare for the general exam, and what really happens at a thesis defense. This talk will focus on general advice and encouragement. All are welcome to attend, ask questions, and share their experiences.
This event is cross listed with the Current Topics Seminar.
