Wrapping up the process

This post brings to a conclusion my doctoral practices as a candidate. I have updated select extracts of recent publications on the side bar, examples of which include an abstract of my thesis and related conference papers. I am currently awaiting confirmation that the thesis has been uploaded to the Australian digital thesis data base and entered in the ANU library catalogue.

I received my PhD certificate a few weeks ago and am currently working on the Carrick-funded project on skills development for HDR candidates. An internal article PhD busts PhD stereotype was published this week, generating some inquiries about my doctoral and current research. The reading group (HERO) established a couple of years ago involving candidates and staff from universities in Canberra remains active. Our second meeting for the year will be held next week on Tuesday 4 March. When matters of interest pertaining to doctoral practices arise I shall endeavour to maintain the twin processes of documentation and reflection.
