Dr Nathan Ryder loves helping people. He's a skills trainer with six years of experience helping PhD candidates prepare for the viva. He has delivered over 90 viva preparation workshops to nearly 2000 PhD candidates all over the UK. In 2012 he created the Viva Survivors Podcast, where he interviews PhD graduates about their research, their viva and life after the PhD.

In 2013 he published Fail Your Viva - Twelve Steps To Failing Your PhD (And Fifty-Eight Tips For Passing), a helpful and humorous guide to preparing for and passing the viva. This was followed in 2015 by The Viva: Who? What? How? - Frequently Asked Questions About The PhD Viva, a guide to the most commonly asked questions about the viva.
