You might think to yourself “Hey what does this person know about what it takes to complete a PhD” –
well in fact quiet a lot. After studying Genetics in Trinity, I went on to do a PhD in the Conway Institute,
University College Dublin. My research investigated how the pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 family member, Bim, is
phosphorylated following prolonged mitotic arrest. I loved the lab and my project; however, my PhD took
me 5 years to complete, which was a huge mistake on my part and really should have set alarm bells
I wrote this eBook to provide you with a guide for writing your PhD based on my own experiences and
those of other PhD graduates. This e-Book should provide you with ways to keep your research efficient
and complete your PhD with minimal stress and on time.
I believe this eBook will empower you to complete your PhD and also offer support throughout the
process. Now, let’s get started.
