Advice on Professional Development
These presentations cover advice on making presentations, choosing research topics, improving your writing style, and the journey to tenure. They are available in ppt or pptx format for downloading, or pdf versions which are smaller files but they have no animation (which could be helpful for some slides). Some of the presentations contain material that overlap content with other ones.

- Making effective powerpoint presentations. (7-10-17). [pdf version].
- Advice- research topics and creativity (7-10-17). [pdf version]
- Writing pointers- Figures and Style. 7-10-17 (ppt file) (7-10-17). General pointers for writing papers. [Writing pointers- pdf version]
- Getting Tenure: not just a destination. 7-9-17 (ppt file). This is a lecture primarily aimed at new faculty on managing your time and finding ways to be successful– following your transition from student to becoming a mentor and advisor to researchers in your new group. [pdf version]
- The value of an Endowed Chair to a researcher. This is a short (1 minute) interview where I was asked to comment on how having an endowed professor position has helped my research and my career.
Publishing in ES&T and ES&T Letters
Interested in publishing in Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T) or ES&T Letters? As the Editor for ES&T Letters, I am often asked to give a presentation on the journals, with an emphasis on what it takes to successfully get a manuscript published in the journal.
