Hello everyone :)So happy to be joining this group where I will be able to exchange with fellow physicists and be with like-minded people.
I graduated with a Masters in TP 5 years ago and moved on to work in IT and teaching instead of moving directly to a PhD.
Now, I kinda regret my choice, even if those experiences really confirmed me that I was born to be an academic...
Now that I have been out of the game for few years I am looking for some advices and guidance to excel in my comeback in academia and more specifically to create the most competitive phd application.
Looking forward to meeting you all :)
