Why does this page exist?
- Have you ever read a paper and just felt really stupid because you couldn't understand what the author was trying to convey?
- Have you ever been to a talk, presentation, etc. and wished you could be somewhere else?
- Have you ever asked yourself how some people like Simon Peyton Jones write such excellent papers?
- Are you in the final stages of your degree and unsure about the structure and organization of your thesis?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then this page may be useful for you. On this page I try to accumulate links to advice from people which have inspired me in many ways during my studies, and continue to do so. If you have any other valuable pointers I would be very glad if you could forward them to me via E-Mail.
