In this episode I’m talking to Dr Chloe Sharp, who had her viva in January 2013. Chloe did her PhD at the University of Bedfordshire and her thesis was titled “Examining the relationships between deceased organ donation, gift exchange theory and religion: a Polish perspective.” Once again, it was fascinating for me to hear about a research topic very different to my PhD! You can find Chloe on Twitter as @formalcuriosity, and check out her website Formalised Curiosity for articles on research and more information about her work. You can find the article about common viva questions that Chloe wrote here.
If you’ve got any questions or comments about this episode, then comment on this post, tweet @VivaSurvivors – or email me! And please get in touch if you’d like to appear on a future episode. I’m always looking for PhD graduates ready to share their research and viva experiences. I’m also looking for academics happy to talk in future specials on Academic Jobs or being an examiner.
Thanks for listening! (and reading!)
