Graduate Student Tips

Graduate student tips:
1. Choose the right advisor.

2. Read a lot of papers, work out the details, learn the body of math. Learn as much as possible of applied math, physics & biology.

3. Identify a field of interest and learn it in depth. Very important to choose the questions to study. You should have the big questions in mind. The smaller questions you work on should have a bearing on the big ones.
