In three words or phrases how would you describe your supervision style?

My goal is to provide the guidance for you to carry out the project yourself.

In one or two sentences please describe your strategies regarding the following.
Provision of training:

I will make sure that for anything that you do you will have adequate training. Training will be carried out by me or other people in the lab.

Progression monitoring and management:

I generally talk to students regularly. Depending on the stage of the project this can be on a daily basis or less frequently. We have formal monthly meetings.

Communication:

Generally, I communicate in person or on email.
