Charla “How to finish that damn PhD” (en inglés)




After detailing his qualifications to give advice about finishing your PhD, Berry

  • describes what makes a good PhD thesis topic,
    - suggests ways to find a good one and
    - explains why and how to scope it,
  • outlines a good PhD thesis,
  • cautions against procrastination,
    - gives ideas for improving your focus, but
    - reminds you to also get a life, and
    - insists that you need to know when you are done, and
  • encourages you to confront your fears
    - about your abilities and
    - about the exams that you need to pass.

Expect to have your socks knocked off.
