Bio:

Hey all, my name is Jack Fernandes. In the long term (after completing my Ph.D.), I am planning to conduct research on critical security studies and political psychology. If anyone is interested in a research-oriented career, I am happy to talk to them about my experiences. Additionally, feel free to ask me about applying to graduate school.

Career Advice:

(1) Start thinking and researching positions that you would want early on. (2) Identify job descriptions that matches your dream job (3) Build a plan for gaining the necessary skills required for those jobs while at Oxy or after graduating
