Queen's School of Graduate Studies' Dissertation Boot Camp

Kathrin Tyryshkin got the support she needed to finish writing her dissertation at the Queen's School of Graduate Studies' Dissertation Boot Camp. The next Boot Camp is scheduled for June 8-12. (University Communications)
Before even defending her PhD in Computer Science, Kathrin Tyryshkin had two job offers - one in industry, and one at a Queen's department (the one she ultimately took). Dr. Tyryshkin surely chose a timely field and stayed the course with diligence in publishing, conferencing and teaching, but she credits at least part of her success to Queen's School of Graduate Studies' Dissertation Boot Camp. The primary aim of the five-day Dissertation Boot Camp is for participants to write and make substantial headway on their thesis. The majority of the time is spent writing, with breaks for snacks, lunch, and structured group discussions about topics relevant to thesis writers.
