A Day in the Life of a Harvard PhD Student 2022

  • Publicado el 6 may 2022
  • This is a day in my life as a Harvard physics PhD student in 2022. In this vlog, I'll give you a tour of Harvard's campus and show you the best places to study. I'm hoping to give you a daily glimpse of what it's like to do a theoretical physics PhD at Harvard.
    I post these day in the life at Harvard vlogs weekly, so stay tuned!

    Bro this is my dream learning environment. Imagine just being sorrounded by these passionate people working and researching on their respective academic fields, it's the most inspiring and motivating place I could ever asked.

    I love how you added some facts about your advisor, as well as that person who won a Nobel Prize... I often walk around campus and am like "holy crap, these people really discovered X and got Y". I attend MIT also completing a PhD, so right down the street :)

    I actually liked/loved the back story you told about crossing the bridge from Cambridge to Harvard. It was very inspirational and sounded like there was a lot of emotions involved in that journey. Also about your watch it's so amazing that you associated that expensive watch to a priceless memories of you working so hard for it with your father. This kinda tells things which are earned with a commitment and hard work are more precious because memories and journey is associated with them not necessarily because they are expensive and luxury...it's really inspiring you enjoy and take pride in wearing that. Wishing you tons of luck for your future endeavors 🙂.

    "But at this point I'm still very confused about what they're trying to say, but doing physics is really about working through that confusion until you figure out the answer."
    I really love that you said this. As a person that tends to be very self-critical, it's often hard for me to imagine that Harvard students or Nobel winners or people at the top of their field ever feel confused at a problem or don't know where to start. I sometimes feel as though people in those positions are always on top of it and I'm just built different and not as smart. I know it's silly, but it's where my mind goes when I'm getting down on myself. So thank you for this insight into your studies. It reminds the rest of us that even the smartest and most capable among us get confused or stuck and to keep going. Never give up.

      @Telperion I totally agree. I sometimes feel underwhelmed at my performance when I make simple mistakes on problems or take too long to work through one. I almost have an expectation that I need to be "robotic" in the way I think, but that's just not how it works. Being reassured that the brightest individuals also get stuck/confused often is incredibly relieving.

    Thanks for reminding me of my dear Cambridge and Harvard Square! I was there not to solve enigmatic quantum physics problems but just to humbly improve my English. For three months my wife and I've lived on Lee Street and went on foot to the school at Harvard Square under the incredibly blue sky of the New England!

    Good stuff dude. I definitely wouldn't want to do a PhD. Just too much work for not enough gain to me. And tbh I'm still not sure what field I'd want to do. And quantum mechanics just kind of blows my mind after so long using classical. It'd ok though I've learned that life is about being happy about yourself and your own goals and shouldn't be about comparing yourself to others. Good luck out there and great video. Hope one day I truly enjoy my work like you do.

I have this dream to finish my degree summa cum laude and make good money with coding so that I can do my masters at a top university. Everyone around me has been saying it’s not possible, but it’s videos like these - seeing others with similar goals as me - achieve their goals that motivate me so much. It’s hard work but I really hope I’ll get there too. Good luck man.

      @Quantum Boy I appreciate your simplicity and the hard work that you put in learning. This is very motivating. Thanks! It was always a dream to be a student at Harvard, but I'm from Romania, the time went to another pipeline for me. I can do my best where I'm now, enjoying the present, enjoying the process, and your clips are motivating me.

    This video has different tone than your other videos. In this one you seem to be more excited and happy. Now your videos have a seriousness. I really like it.. how you add some details about your work in your videos. This makes us feel more connected with the video.

    I went to Harvard for my masters and I can tell you that MANY of the students I knew were not that bright. They are just amazing at memorizing and taking tests, but actually not bright.

      @J I should add that my professors were legitimately brilliant people and I loved being in their classes. I don’t think a majority of them are far left, but the more conservative ones just avoid politics. My colleagues, however, were nuts.

      I have noticed this trend in university in general. Some of my profs have multiple high end degrees but no degree in common sense. I think a lot of people excel in school just because they can cram for an exam and nail it no problem. I’ve also noticed quite a few academics don’t have many life skills, just academic skills. It’s bizarre to me.
