I’m available for speaking engagements at universities, colleges, and research institutes. My talks can be tailored to undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and early career researchers.

For now, I am available to speak through videoconference. When travel resumes, I will be available for in-person engagements as well as online events.

My expertise is in the following topics:

  • Orientation towards an international graduate program for undergraduate students;
  • Getting started with your PhD;
  • Planning methods and tools for researchers;
  • Preparing and passing your PhD defense;
  • Balancing work and family duties for academic parents;
  • Finding your voice and balancing commitments as an early career researcher.

Feel free to reach out to me to discuss a possible speaking engagement!
