Speaking and Workshops

I love speaking about academic life, from my own experience and from what I have learned from others. I share academic life hacks, study tips and research and writing advice.

I also speak about coping with academia and job hunting as an international student, a demographic that is poorly represented and catered for.

Let  me  help your students!

Ken participated on the LatAm Research Symposium delivering the talk: How I completed my PhD in 2.5 years – Tips, tricks and lessons learned. This talk was very insightful and worth to be listened for all PhD and master international students struggling towards their research and job hunting experiences. Ken highlighted a few tips for PhD students onto how to structure their thesis and improve their project time length by simple yet worthy suggestions. Also, Ken provided some examples about his personal experience through his PhD that made the delegates to feel engaged with his stories and motivated at the same time to complete their PhD. I would strongly recommend Ken to be any PhD and masters’ advisor.
