"I like how the topics are broken up. The shortness of the videos allows me to fit them in between work and research."

"As an early-career researcher it is invaluable to me (and likely will save my mentor some time)..."

PhD student, China [Workshop]

"I can't wait to put into practice what I learnt in my subsequent works."
