Series Details


Good news! Duplicate sessions in another timezone are now LIVE!
9:30AM EST Every Wednesday;
8PM EST Every Thursday

We'll be starting with beginner sessions to introduce you to research, including different fields of research and how each area of study conducts research differently. Then, we'll follow-up with sessions led by people who are currently doing or have done research like postgraduate students or those who are part of research programs. They'll go a little deeper into research in their specific field, and you'll have the opportunity to ask questions. We'll wrap things up with a session discussing careers in research, and not just academia!

At the end of this series, I hope that those of you who are considering research will have a better idea of whether you want to start research, and in what field! 😄📝


You are free to attend/skip whichever sessions you want. Please only sign up for sessions you can attend. DM me in advance if you're unable to attend at the time set.

About the Tutors

Hi! I’m currently a Master's student studying public policy. I'm hoping to do more work in nonprofits. I have a very specific educational background in Southeast Asian history, culture and politics, and a rather interesting pathway to Master's (I'm a disabled international student with no prior tertiary qualification). I've also worked as a business consultant in the tech industry and I love cooking!
