Associate Professor Inger Mewburn, Director of Research Training at the Australian National University (ANU), will kick start this year’s Eportfolio Forum Online (Eportforum) on 29 October as the Opening Keynote speaker.


Inger runs and curates professional development workshops and programs for all ANU researchers

Inger is also known as the Thesis Whisperer, where she helps all researchers, particularly PhD students, through her The Thesis Whisperer blog, research, workshops, and more.

Inger’s most recent blog post is about Finding a research job during COVID lockdowns.

At this year’s Eportforum, Inger will share how learning to relax and love LinkedIn helped support her professional identities, and she will share how academics can balance the need for self promotion with the desire for privacy.
