This week on the show, I bring you a conversation around the concept of effective altruism and about a non-profit offering support, coaching and community to undergrad and graduate researchers based on the concept.

With me, Isobel Phillips, project manager, and Dev Sachdev, head coach of Effective Thesis.


Effective Thesis is an international non-profit providing free guidance to students (undergraduate-PhD) who want to begin research careers that significantly improve the world. They believe in the power of academia to do good and are passionate about connecting and inspiring researchers to pick an impactful field of study.

Isobel Phillips is project manager and Dev Sachdev is head coach at Effective Thesis.


Thank you, Isobel! Thank you, Dev!
