Guest Talk by Anja Glenk | Balance and Joy: Key Ingredients for a Successful Doctoral Journey

  • 6:30 pm (H33, Applied Informatics)

The talk will elaborate on stressors that are particularly common in academia and how to deal with them. Anja has been holding workshops and private consultations to PhD students and Postdocs, focusing on regaining joy and balance in the daily grind that is the research lab. She will be sharing her thoughts and methods for inspiring people into reducing pressure and rediscovering their passion, which is the reason they started the journey to begin with.
