Who is your scientific inspiration and why?

Unfortunately, I haven’t found one so far - however, it could be you and me in the future!

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

Supportive, Goal-driven, Organised

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

I prefer to take responsibility for your technical training in your first project, leading to more independence later. At the same time, I will expect you to independently figure out appropriate skills proactively.

Progression monitoring and management:

We will have a weekly meeting in which we discuss all aspects of your PhD projects. You can come to me when you need help troubleshooting and on other issues. I also have high expectations and would like to support you to your fullest potential.

Communication:

We use MS Teams channels for the group and individual projects as well, in addition to weekly meetings. Although communication may occur out of work hours, I do not expect you to do the same. I will expect you to manage your work/life balance. I am happy to discuss any issues that are impacting your ability to fulfil your potential and our expectations.

How often do your PhD students see you in a timetabled group meeting?

At least once per week

In year 1 of PhD study, how often do your PhD students have a scheduled >30 minute 1:1 meeting with you?

At least once per week

In year 2 of PhD study, how often do your PhD students have a scheduled >30 minute 1:1 meeting with you?

At least once per week

In year 3 of PhD study, how often do your PhD students have a scheduled >30 minute 1:1 meeting with you?

At least once per week

What form do your 1:1 meetings with PhD students take?

Face to face (if allowed under current health and safety advice)

Open door policy?

Yes, I am usually contactable for an instant response (if required) on every working day.

My expectation of PhD student working patterns?

The timing of work in my lab is completely flexible, and (other than attending pre-arranged meetings), I expect students to manage their own time.

Notice for feedback (e.g. on reports, manuscript drafts, thesis chapters)?

I need at least 2 week’s notice to provide feedback on written work of up to 5000 words.
