#Research Ressources for PhD students
Friday, January 22, 2021


I was invited to give a talk as part of the CLEF center webinar series on the topic of how to prepare a good Ph.D. I sadly run out of time to share all the great resources I've gathered and that I deemed could make students' lives a little easier.

“I’ve become convinced that how networks work has become an essential 21st Century literacy.” ~Harold Rheingold

In the Era of interconnectedness that we are witnessing today, we belong to many many networks And weaving various network is the key to thrive. That is why to my sense, brokers (people who tie together otherwise disconnected people and leverage what is called weak ties)  are actually what we can call great network players. And here is why.
