Recipes for PhD

Greetings from the Australian National University where Milad Shokouhi, Microsoft Research Cambridge, is speaking on "Recipes for PhD" (slides available). He suggested potential PHD students think about why they want to do this and if they are interested in research. Also he pointed out that PHDs is not a fast path to a very high salary.

Unfortunately what Milad went through were the routine and obvious steps of being a PHD students, which research students learn in their introductory training. I would have liked to hear about some advanced concepts and some of what is done at Microsoft Research Cambridge

Milad is in Australia for SIGIT2014 on the Gold Coast, 6 to 11 July 2014.
