MaPSS: Maths Postgraduate Seminar Series: Eric Hester -- Life hacks for researchers

Hello all, 

The next MaPSS talk of this semester will be at 17:00 on Monday 27th in Carslaw 351.
Note the venue change! It’ll also be a slightly different format than usual; I’ll be
talking about some tools that I think everyone will find useful for their research.
Plus as always it’s a great opportunity to meet fellow postgrads and of course get some
free pizza! 


Speaker: Eric Hester 

Title: Life Hacks for Your Research 

Abstract: Ever get sick of changing from your shiny laptop to a school computer for
printing, or tuteroll? Hoping for an easier way to download papers and sort out your
bibliography? Baffled by BibTex vs Biblatex for your arXiv submission? Well, this is the
talk for you! 

I’m going to show you some of the time saving tools I’ve amassed over my PhD,
(especially Zotero) so you don’t have to spend years figuring it out like I did.  This
is going to be a very interactive demonstration, so please bring your laptops and we’ll
get these tools installed! 


See you there!

Cheers, Eric
