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

Supportive, goal-driven, student-centred, 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 at first, leading to more independence later.

Then, your training will be supervised predominantly by my experienced post docs/PhD students.

Progression monitoring and management:

I will set out my expectations of your progression on a weekly/monthly basis. If these progression criteria are not met we will always discuss a plan of action together.

I am here for advice and guidance to help you reach the goals you set for yourself.
