Dr. Verity Elston

About me

With a taste for exploring the world and all that it offers, and a love of understanding a little better how its people find their way, I bring it all together to help people figure out that gnarly question asked of historians, physicists, biologists and philosophers: sure it’s fascinating, but what’ll you do with that PhD?

I build on my knowledge and experience to advise, train and coach doctoral candidates and postdocs on their career path. I lead and develop professional training programmes with an eye to the tools a PhD needs and how best they’ll learn. And because the learning is never done, I continue to research, manage and analyse the qualitative and quantitative data, building effective advice based on real practice.
