Selfie with mom on my graduation day!

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, information, and actionable steps to individuals who have embarked upon this journey.

My name is Oindree Banerjee. 

I graduated with my Ph.D. in physics from (The) Ohio State University in the summer of 2018. 

My thesis research sub-field was Particle Astrophysics and I worked on an ultra-high-energy neutrino experiment called ANITA. 

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

In grad school, I worked as a graduate teaching associate (GTA) for almost three years in the Physics and Astronomy departments, and also led several outreach projects.

I also got to travel quite a bit for my research, 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 under the blog posts!

Welcome, and enjoy!
