The relationship with your PhD advisor is a crucial aspect of the PhD journey. In this talk, we will discuss the care and feeding of advisors: how a PhD student can actively manage the relationship with their advisor. Topics include things to think about when selecting an advisor, different advising styles, expectations that students or advisors may have, and expectations and constraints that both advisors and PhD students may have.
