What’s been the most challenging part of the Ph.D.?
I think the most challenging part of the program has to be learning to embrace the constant failures. Breaking the boundaries of knowledge and generating new findings goes hand in hand with failure. I think when you do a Ph.D., you spend more time finding out what doesn’t work vs. the very few things that do. The trick is to realize that regardless of failure or success, you have generated new knowledge that can aid in the development of future solutions. Persistence is key!
I recently had the pleasure of doing an interview for DiscoverPhDs and sharing my experiences about the Ph.D. journey. This is a great resource for prospective Ph.D. students and I highly recommend checking it out. A big thank you to Harry for the opportunity.
