PubhD is a public-speaking event for postgraduate students and early-career researchers to present their work to an audience in the pub. This is great because:
|1. It’s an opportunity to gain experience away from conferences and departmental posters days.
2. It’s in the pub! So it’s a bit more relaxed and friendly, plus you can have a beer while doing your presentation.
The first one was in Nottingham in January 2014, and since then students at other universities have been setting them up, not just in the UK, but all over the world. And now me and a co-organiser have brought it to Manchester! The summary of our first event (which took place on 23rd February 2015) is here. We’ll be doing one a month, and I’m scheduled to talk at the March event. Eeek!
