I had the good fortune to work with Michal Lemberger, PhD when I was behind schedule and struggling with my first chapter in the beginning stage of writing my dissertation. By carefully reading my half-coherent notes, she was able to envision the whole project and guide me through the painful process of rethinking and restructuring my chapters. Her suggestions were always concrete and helpful. She infected me with her “can do” attitude and gave me simple tools to fight procrastination and other obstacles that interfered with productive work. As a result, I was able to complete my dissertation on time and improve the quality of my analysis.
