Let us know if you’re interested in restarting the IWG by emailing Marina Dang (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Every week, Comm Fellows and other NSE students/postdocs got together to work on their writing tasks. Many also joined the IWG to make progress on research-related efforts such as presentations, coding and simulations, and data analysis. The goal was to motivate each other by (re)creating a sense of community and support.
These sessions took place over Zoom:

|Join our community of thesis writers and stay on track to graduate!
Writing a thesis often comes with a great deal of uncertainty and requires mastering key management skills (managing time, setbacks, expectations…). Writing is also an isolating task but it doesn’t have to be an isolating experience.
PHinisheD offers a series of workshops that cover thesis-related communication strategies, connects participants with institute and NSE-specific resources, and acts as a support group to help manage stress. We meet for 1 hour about once a month at first, then as often as weekly when we get closer to key deadlines.
If you are 6-9 months away from defending your PhD and would like to join, please email Marina Dang (email@example.com).
