Tutors

The SDP tutors are drawn from the OII’s own faculty, with additional guest seminars by visiting faculty. In order to provide useful advice for managing dissertation research, we select tutors applying a wide range of disciplinary and methodological approaches and encourage our speakers to offer frank insights into how they have faced and overcome challenges in their own projects.
