100% agree :)Tbh, I too am surprised by this remark. A student beginning a PhD is, by definition, not "mature as an independent researcher".
Your 2nd sentence is probably true only after one completes a PhD (though it can sometimes take longer).
If a beginning PhD student is not allowed to ask others for advice about topics, then wtf is the supervisor for?
Very interesting theory...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massive_gravity
It´s an interesting topic, since it has interaction with high energy physics, cosmology (both theoretical and observational) and potentially also with beyond the standard model physics.
Hope you find it useful. :D
Thanks Abdul Aziz, Fermion masses problem seems really interesting. I also went through your nice PhD thesis about this problem in GUT’s. But I’m not sure about your idea of connecting Neutrino masses to cosmology brother… Do you mean one can find a cosmological mechanism during inflation or due to DM, to determine neutrino mass?As the masses of Fermions cannot be predicted with in standard model, you might find Fermions mass problem in particular neutrino mass generation mechanism, as neutrino can be thought of as dark matter candidate and also has important role in inflation etc. It might also help you to work in cosmology later on.......
