Tricks of the Trade with Nick Tyler: Changing Disciplines for the Better

13 November 2017

In this session, Professor Nick Tyler (Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering UCL) led a discussion on the ways in which early career researchers can challenge the disciplinary hegemony driving much of current research and develop their own ways to create new ways of tackling the problems facing the world. Based on his own experience of developing interdisciplinary research, he suggested tactics for being creative while at the same time meeting the requirements for promotion criteria, publication rates, grant applications and other necessary parts of an early career researcher’s working life.
