Episode 48: Dr Laura Bonnett

In this episode I talk to Dr Laura Bonnett, who is currently a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the University of Liverpool. Laura completed her PhD part-time at Liverpool, and her research area was biostatistics. In the episode we discuss what it was like for Laura to do her PhD part-time and to have several papers published. We also talk about what happened on the day of her viva – when her examiners didn’t agree on their recommendations – and how she resolved the situation. You can find Laura on Twitter as @ljbcmshe.

I can’t believe we’re almost at fifty episodes! I’m planning to do something a little different for episode 50, and am also hoping to have a special announcement (or two) for then too. If you want to get in touch please email me! I’m on Twitter a fair bit, so you can catch me there as @DrRyder or @VivaSurvivors. I love hearing from people who want to come on the podcast to share their PhD and viva experiences. If you can, please consider supporting the podcast by buying one of my ebooks on viva preparation.

Thanks for reading!

Nathan (@DrRyder and @VivaSurvivors)
