Who's doing the weirdest PhD?


User: Slizor - 14 November 2009 11:49

I'm doing mine on a sexy topic - the politics of oil........

....well at least I think it's sexy.

User: maria1 - 14 November 2009 12:09

Eska that's so interesting! And after all these years I have mocked him for it! I am going to email him now and ask how he's getting on with it. M x

I am just writing my thesis up, and I've spent 3 years cooling little gadgets down to -272.996°C, playing with cryogens and looking at quantum turbulence. Is that weird enough?!

Sounds pretty awesome actually. Wonder how that would look in the 'dance your phd' contest 8-)

hmm - does it mean you have access to make ice cream really quickly? - my dream job :-x

User: Ragingwitch - 10 December 2009 22:44

Yes, I can make ice-cream in about 20 seconds with liquid nitrogen! There's no way I could dance my PhD either hahaha!

User: jinkim65 - 11 December 2009 09:59

I could probably dance my PhD... In fact I may just do my viva using charades...

User: Ragingwitch - 11 December 2009 16:07

This is an excellent suggestion for a replacement viva format; I'm no contemporary dancer but I could sing it and then cry. Oh wait, I probably will cry in the viva anyway...

Geography.. hmm, weird?

User: nerdyandproud - 03 February 2010 03:15

i think it is normal - but apparently baffles others: 'experimental travel and anti-tourism encounters'...

I know a guy doing a PhD on the subject of 'Star Trek'.

User: teek - 17 February 2010 00:54

Hey Huxley - I take it from your board domination that you're in for a late one too? As for that phd, star trek, seriously? Wow.
And I thought that my linking psychiatry with food allergies (via genetics) was weird!

Yeah yeah.

I haven't even started my MLitt.

Still have to get the homelessness, moneylessness, transportlessness situation sorted out first.

I'm just in here for the 'academic banter'.

Nice one Huxley. That's the kind of thing we were looking for. It's even worth a tweet me thinks.

User: plbogen - 09 April 2010 05:02

I am doing a PhD in Computer Science on using textual analysis techniques to generate a high-dimensional representation of a webpage (in particular blogs). I am then using an object movement prediction algorithm to come up with a measure of normality of change so I can identify abnormally change incidents in a webpage.
