PhD in Computer Science

  1. Jun 10, 2015 #1
    Hi all

    I'm a software developer who has been provisionally accepted onto a doctorate programme. I've always been a lover of physics and astronomy in particular.

    In short I'm someone with no formal education in Physics, but would love to work my layman's interest into my PhD.

    I've considered robotics and AI as a launching point, what else could be a good idea?

    High performance computing. There are support positions for people with similar backgrounds in the national labs to help people doing combustion research, lattice QCD, accelerator modeling, etc.
