Working Efficiently During Your PhD

Thursday, January 24, 2019 at 3:00pm to 5:00pm


Back by popular demand, MIT is thrilled to welcome Dr. Jean-luc Doumont  for his annual IAP lectures.

Unless you know how to squeeze more than 24 hours in a day, you are probably receptive to advice on how to achieve more in the time you have. Rather than add to the long lists of tips available in books or websites, this lecture proposes a simple but solid framework to help you decide what is worth doing (and what is not). It then discusses how to manage your time and your physical or virtual space to actually get things done.

Dr. Doumont holds an engineering degree from the Louvain School of Engineering and a PhD in applied physics from Stanford. He specializes in professional speaking, writing, and graphing, and incorporates a unique engineering perspective. He is an international speaker and the author ofTrees, Maps, and Theorems: effective communication for rational minds”. All CAPD workshops are open to MIT undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and alumni. RSVP requested via CareerBridge.
