The talk presents the detail nuts and bolts useful for PhD candidates to manage their own PhD research program effectively in order to maximize the research output in terms of thesis writing and paper publications. The tips and guides in this talk are drawn from the speaker's own life-long experience in research and research supervision at various universities, mainly in Australia, New Zealand and Vietnam. Asian PhD candidates will find the talk very useful because the speaker has successfully supervised many PhD candidates from most Asian countries during his career.
