While every Ph.D. is unique, each one is a journey filled with challenge and struggle. 

The purpose of this blog is to provide community and support to individuals who have embarked upon this journey.

My name is Oindree Banerjee. 

I am a 5th-year graduate student and Ph.D. candidate in the Physics department of (The) Ohio State University.

My thesis research sub-field is Particle Astrophysics. 

I became a researcher in my freshman year of college where I studied topics ranging from Analytical Chemistry and Neuroscience to Nuclear Astrophysics.

Now I work on an ultra-high-energy neutrino experiment called ANITA. 

Through my research projects, I have gained experience in analysis, instrumentation, and simulation, as well as project management and communication at all levels. 

I have been a graduate teaching associate (GTA) for two and a half years in Physics and Astronomy, and have also led several outreach projects.

As a research scientist, I have traveled quite a bit, including to the icy continent of Antarctica!

In this blog, I share my experiences as a Ph.D. student and researcher, and what I have learned from them. 

I would be thrilled to hear about your experiences, so please feel free to reach out to me and/or post comments on the blog posts!

Welcome, and enjoy!
