I’ve now moved to NYC, and my graduate program is about to start. So I consider today’s topic to be very appropriate in how it coincides with where I’m about to go.
PHD Comics ran a contest where people to submitted two minute descriptions of their graduate research, across all subjects.
All of the entries are here.
I started listening to the entries that had 100+ votes, and this is very, very interesting. There are a lot of interesting tidbits here, that obviously don’t come close to the depth that the research is undertaken in, but that can be of interest to people outside of that field.
This is also something that I personally think is very important–discussing different topics openly, which some people might not get to hear about otherwise. Especially when it comes to science, but I might be a little biased there.
