Thesis Boot Camp

With Dr Peta Freestone and Dr Liam Connell, I was on the team that set up the award-winning Thesis Boot Camp program at the University of Melbourne, which is now offered across Australia and the UK.

Academic writing masterclasses

My Thesis Writing Masterclass is a 2-day program suitable for graduate researchers–the first session was given at Griffith University in September 2018. 1 day versions are also available.

Public engagement on doctoral development 

I maintain a doctoral writing support blog, Research Degree Insiders, which has been featured on WordPress’ Freshly Pressed and Automattic’s .blog, and is regularly used by libraries, academic skills services and doctoral students to share advice.

My books are found in most major libraries and can be bought from all major online book outlets. How to Fix your Academic Writing Trouble: A Practical Guide (2018), co-authored with Dr Inger Mewburn of the Thesis Whisperer Blog and Shuan Lehman of ANU, is out with Open University Press, and Your PhD Survival Guide: Planning Writing and Succeeding in your Final Year (2020) is out with Routledge.
