Dissertation Student

This page is under construction, and presumably will be as long as I'm alive.  I'd like to link dissertations and code here for everyone who has passed through, or at least for projects that get either first class honours (undergrads) or distinctions (MScs).  If you are a former student & I am missing any info or a link for you, please email me & I will edit it in. 

If you are a current student (esp. a PhD student), you should start gently by reading wise advice to new grad students, then you probably ought to read the Researcher's Bible. You might also want to read about doing research at the MIT AI lab, although of course I don't expect my students' lives to be like that (honest).  In contrast, this is exactly what a PhD is about.  Here is excellent advice to read before writing your dissertation, on the difference between a thesis and a dissertation.  Here is some very wise words about doing graduate research.  I particularly like the "How to keep/create a good relationship?"   Here's some British advice that particularly address personal time and again your relationship with your supervisor.

When you are nearly done with your PhD (or postdoc) you should probably read this advice on writing your first grants.

If you are a final-year undergraduate or masters student, you should probably read my own advice about writing essays and dissertations.

I'm also on the committees of: Some of the other PhD students I've examined or co supervised:

I've had a couple people start PhDs and not complete, but we still learned from each other.

Masters Students

All students MSc unless otherwise indicated. Note, due to a two body problem it's been hard for me to supervise MScs since 2006 as I don't tend to be in Bath in the summers.
