My Journey from Ph.D. Scholar to Supervisor

  1. 1. 1
  2. 2. My Journey From Ph.D. Scholar to Supervisor Prof. (Dr.) Pravat Kumar Rout EEE Department, SOA (Deemed to be) University 2
  3. 3. Why this talk? …To bring a change within you  To offer additional advice or insight into how to succeed in a Ph.D. program  To share my experience as a Ph.D. scholar of myself and later as a guide  To provide an open-ended evaluation of whether you observed the mistakes among other contemporaries in your Ph.D. program 3 To bring a change within you
  4. 4. My Journey 4
  5. 5. Redefining my thought on what is Ph.D.?  PhD — technically short for Doctor of Philosophy — is a type of doctoral degree, often considered the highest-level degree one can earn.  The word ‘philosophy’ comes from the Ancient Greek philosophia, literally translated as ‘love of wisdom’. It originally signified an individual who had achieved a comprehensive general education in the fundamental issues of the present world.  Today, the Doctor of Philosophy still requires a love of wisdom but applies to individuals who have pursued knowledge in a much more specialized field. 5
  6. 6. Come across many Myth in Ph.D.  The outcome of Ph.D. is paper  Ph.D. is just an degree like other degrees  Ph.D. standard related to Journal, Institute and Country  Good Ph.D. always needs good laboratory 6 Reality: Ph.D. is a learning process to enhance self-capability to innovate, to understand, ability to gain knowledge, and to create knowledge through learning. Ph.D. is to build an overall development of an intellectual person to be able to contribute to the society.
  7. 7. 7 Started to think on the right methodology for Ph.D. problems
  8. 8. Process-1: Modular concept…Reminds father’s birthday gift 8 Lesson: Segregate your entire work into many small problem and try to solve each individually. After that try integrate synchronously to solve the larger problem.
  9. 9. Case study for process-1: Distribution System Planning 9 Module-1: Load flow analysis Module-2: Optimization Technique Module-3: Objective Function, System Constraints, Variables Master Program
  10. 10. Process-2: Step by step procedure….Reminds the staircase of the Institute 10 Step-1: Review of previous and related work Step-2: Modeling of your work. One way to modify for better of the previous work considering their limitations. Second to model a new with a novel idea Step-3: Improvement and justification through comparison Step-4: Paper writing and communicating to related Journals
  11. 11. Case-study for process-2: Signal processing application to power system protection 11
  12. 12. Process-3: Know the basic/standard process of development? Reminds the Sunflower movement with Sun Lesson:  Follow the basic procedure or approach or process according to the guide’s experience  Stick to the guide line and basics  Redefined, rethink, and innovate after learning 12
  13. 13. Case study for process-3: Dynamic Simulation 13 Step-1: Find out the state variables and the dynamic equations Step-2: Make all dynamic equations zero. Find out a steady state solution. Step-3: Main Loop starts. Solve all the dynamic equations by classical methodology like: Runga Kutta Method. Declare the variables to store the data in every iteration Step-4: Do the controller modeling according to the error occurred due to fault Step-5: Do the load flow Step-6: Create the disturbance, and fault Step-7: Recalculate other parameters by the newly calculated control action and load flow result Step-8: Return to Step-2 Step-9: Run till the stipulated time and present the final output
  14. 14. Process-4: Follow the footprints….Reminds the mothers teaching how to walk 14 Lesson: Initially following is the only way to learn. Later we can add our innovation to it Inspiration from the Wright Brothers
  15. 15. Case study for process-4: Evolutionary Optimization Application to Power System Control 15 • Simulink Model Step-1 • Evolutionary Optimization Step-2: • Parameter tuning through specific index Step-3 • Set the optimized value and find the results Step-4
  16. 16. Initial Necessary Steps for Ph.D. 16
  17. 17. 1. Don't start the Ph.D. without planning… 17 My Observation: Lake of planning prior to start the Ph.D. Lesson: Plan before you start for your goal, either it is just a wish or day dream hope
  18. 18. 2. Dairy and planner for 3-5 years is must for a Ph.D. student ?  My Observation: Completely depend on the supervisors the way they move, the way they coordinate the facts, the way they plan and everything… 18 Lesson: Every Ph.D. student should have a planner or diary to guide himself/herself rather throwing all the responsibilities completely by his/her supervisor.
  19. 19. 3. Focus on Long Term Goal of Ph.D.  My observation: Doctoral students give up too early because of the lake of patience and not looking to long term achievements. 19 Lesson: Life is multidimensional. You cannot define your success with one failure or one factor like a paper or number of citation or impact factor or with a job or with a salary or with H-index. If your goal is to get rich, then the PhD is not for you.
  20. 20. 4. Selection of study area (field of study) and advisor in Ph.D. My observation: Wrong decisions may happen due to  Selection of area  Selection of problem  Selection of advisor 20 Lesson: Extensive review before you take the decision… Take your own time before you decide… Have an extensive study… Extensive Reading…. Necessary ground work to be done….
  21. 21. 5. Different ball and game of education your Ph.D. is?  My Observation: Doctoral students are ignorant about the Ph.D. and its learning system. Need to understand exactly what Ph.D. is? 21 Stage-1: The dependent learner: Relies on instructor, no self direction, task oriented, completely dependent attitude and learner (Class1-7) Stage-2: The interested learner: Not always directed, Seek some opportunities, Set some goals and building confidence, allowed to be independent learner(Class 8-12) Stage-3: The involved learner: Recognition, Ability to learn by self, learning goals, Methods to achieve goals. Forced to be independent learner(B.Tech., M. Tech.) Stage-4: The self directed learner: Sets goals, Assess, Self motivated, completely Independent attitude and learner (Ph.D. , Post. Doc.) Lesson: A Ph.D. student is a self directed learner. In the process of Ph.D. learning the self contribution and involvement is more important in Ph.D.. The involvement of supervisor is till lesser during post- doc. degree stage.
  22. 22. 6. Ph.D. Scholars sometimes not aware of standard way of Ph.D. supervision  Guide will push into the water in the first day even you don't know swimming.  He/she will instruct and guide how to swim continuously. Watching you progress of learning but not trying to help more than necessary.  Start to help when the student drown.  Guide to focus on extracting the inner capability of the student through self-doing and make you learn yourself. No spoon feeding way of training. 22
  23. 23. 6. The best and first think you have to do for your Ph.D. is to change your attitude towards it 23 My observation: Do not have proper attitude towards Ph.D. even have knowledge and skill Lesson:
  24. 24. Lets start with small steps focusing on actions ignoring all disturbances … 24 Lesson: If you feel unmotivated, Focus on the things that your are in control of and take the next immediate tiny step towards your goal
  25. 25. 7. Love to learn through reading and thinking. If not don't go for Ph.D.  My observations: Not Love to learn.  Not love reading.  Not love to bring best out of what we have. 25 Lesson: Lesson:
  26. 26. 8. Transformation from starting to end of Ph.D….It is a process we have to go through it with best of our ability 26 My observation: Not having confidence that in this environment they can reshape their career Lesson: With same conditions of fire, time of boiling, and water, egg transfer from softer to harder, potato from harder to softer and dal from hardest to no existence. Believe your Teacher, believe your Institute, it is you who can bring the change within you.
  27. 27. During the Ph.D. 27
  28. 28. 1. Responsibility, Excuses and Blame during Ph.D. 28 My observation: Ph.D. students fear to take responsibility. Those who takes the responsibility never try to find out the excuses and play blame game Lesson: Take responsibility as yours without finding excuses and playing blame game.
  29. 29. 2. Stress Management during Ph.D.? My observation: Ph.D. students sometimes be stressed unnecessarily. Example: Guide always praises to other scholars. My Solution: Don’t forget to have a life outside your PhD! Nothing is permanent not even our problems 29
  30. 30. 3. Balance during Ph.D. 30 My observation: Come to stress and loose balance in between work pressure and life Lesson: Prioritise your problems
  31. 31. 4. No “Failure” in research and also in Ph.D. 31 Lesson: Failure is not an opposite word to success, it is a part of success My observation: Thinking failure is there in research. Example: Rejection of a good paper.
  32. 32. 5. Freedom and self-control two important factor for student and guide during Ph.D. My observation: Current always try to flow more in a low resistance path and human mind always like to live in his own way following an easy path or freedom. That may not be a right path.. Example: The progress in many cases is slow with the long absence of guide…. 32 Lesson: Self-control and freedom very often inversely proportional and need to see both as a multi- objective problem in life
  33. 33. 6. Isolation, secrecy, and dependency during Ph.D. 33 My observation: Doctoral students do not create synergy Lesson:
  34. 34. 7. Comparison with others during Ph.D. 34 My observation: Sad due to acceptance of paper of another Ph.D. scholar Lesson: Don't compare yourself to anybody by any means
  35. 35. 35 8: Think about third Alternative which is always there as a solution to our problem…. Lesson: Where Mahatma Gandhi's Satyagraha movement was born as a third alternative. Focus on solution, not on the problem. My observation: Confusion with the problem and solution
  36. 36. 9. How valuable the time during Ph.D. 36 My observation: Doctoral students do not carefully evaluate opportunity cost by utilizing their valuable time during Ph.D. Lesson::
  37. 37. 10. Misunderstanding during Ph.D. dilute the learning process My observations: Judging the guide with behavior not with intension….. Lack of proper communications with their advisors. Most students get fad up once their work is failed. This make them losing smooth communication with their advisors 37 Lesson: Whether it is God’s blessing, whether it father’s love, whether it is guides feeling … many times we not receive the way we want… Many times we fail to understand it…
  38. 38. 11. Who is accountable for your career after Ph.D.? 38 Lesson: Who is accountable for a bad Ph.D.: Student, Supervisor, Topic of research, Facilities. Who may be. But you will suffer by that. Take maximum accountability share during Ph.D.
  39. 39. 12. Dependency attitude during Ph.D...  My observation: Doctoral students do not manage their advisor. Relaying more than necessary on their professor. The students don't try to be self learner, independent problem solver, depending on even small doubts without exploring the resources available…. 39 Lesson: Try to develop your self learning, self creativeness, self power … have an independent attitude... Use your supervisor as an advisor or guide not as an assistant or helper for your Ph.D. Your advisor is there to mentor, not baby sit, you. Expect to work independently.
  40. 40. 13. Satisfy with the present conditions and feel lucky to have it My observation:  I would have done better in IIT and NIT  I would have done better outside India  I would have done better under Prof. X 40 Lesson: Thanks God to have a Lab, my Supervisor, and the Institute…. Love working with it dedicatedly
  41. 41. 14. Choose your path …. Do not confuse 41 My observation: Ph.D. students generally confuse with everything to choose a right path, right topic, right way of approach, right journal etc. Change the topic again and again. Lesson: You have to choose your path and that will make you reach your destination. Your life is a direct result of the choices you have made…. You can follow the path of others or create a path for others to follow
  42. 42. During Ph.D.: Mental health 42
  43. 43. 1. Confidence  My observation: Ph.D. students loose confidence easily 43 Lesson: You can, This is true. If you feel you cannot, that is also true.
  44. 44. 2. Hard and Smart-work? 44 My observation: Believe on hard work and forget to do smart work Lesson:
  45. 45. 3. Self-esteem My observation: Give up attitude happens easily even with small failures 45 Lesson:
  46. 46. 4. How you know you are educated in true sense during and after Ph.D…. My observation: I have mark the ego, arrogance, proudness in many students during and after Ph.D., which are the reflection that they are not educated but qualified. The Ph.D. is not a degree to qualify only, but to educate a human being… 46 Lesson: Your action, your thinking, your attitude, and your human values are the reflection of how much you are educated….
  47. 47. 5. Return obligation by your work and contribution during Ph.D. 47 Lesson: Obliged and return with your contribution and learning
  48. 48. After Ph.D. 48
  49. 49. 1. Think about survival after Ph.D. …give your best effort 49 My experience with a mother after her severe head injury in ambulance…. Lesson: All parents have one desire that their children must able to stand on their own leg before they close their eye for ever Make sure you start planning early to figure out what you want to do after Ph.D.
  50. 50. 2. Be strong during Ph.D. and make others strong afterwards by your contribution 50 Lesson: Today you are student and tomorrow you are going to guide other. It is possible when you will do effective Ph.D. with best learning My observation: If you will not learn and train properly during Ph.D., you will be a liability for the Institute and for the society. Truth is a weak mind cannot make big difference in the society
  51. 51. As a supervisor my observations are 51 The greatest struggle as a teacher and researcher in this life is how to make believe a Ph.D. student that he/she is a blessed child of GOD and their parents. They can do anything once they dream for it.
  52. 52. 1. Do not know yourself how powerful you are for the Ph.D.? 52 My observation: Many student don't know their strength Lesson: Believe in yourself that you are stronger than you think
  53. 53. 2. Don't degrade your belief system during Ph.D.  My observation: Ph.D. student very often not believe to themselves 53 Lesson: Know yourself
  54. 54. 3. You have to be Good because you are lucky not among them 54 My observation: Not recognizing the blessing of GOD and existing opportunities all around us Lesson: Give your best effort to bring best out of you and from your surrounding
  55. 55. Message from Students and faculty 55
  56. 56. 1. Dr. Milan Biswal  B.Tech from Silicon Institute of Technology  Ph.D. from SOA University  Post. Doc. New Mexico State University  Working as Senior Research Scientist / Assistant Professor of Research at New Mexico State University · Full-time 56 Lesson: Knowledge is power. Focus on that
  57. 57. Message of Dr. Milan Biswal  I would just say that being inspired by a purpose is important. One should have a quest! First step is to identify your quest and soon after you pursue, it becomes your passion. When you develop a passion for something the quest approaches infinity and you enjoy the journey.  Related to research, I think the most important part is curiosity and being able to feel the pleasure of finding things out. No contribution is small or large! What matters is your thoughtfulness. PhD is not an educational degree but a reflection of your immense love for knowledge.  No university can teach u research! The university just provides a ratification. But, you know who you are and soon the world will know who you are, from your contributions! 57
  58. 58. 2. Dr. Kaveri Mahapatra  B.Tech. from Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) Bhubaneswar, India  M.Tech. from ITER , SOA University ,Bhubaneswar, India  Ph.D. from Penn State University with three American patent and five IEEE transaction papers in Ph.D.  Working as Power System Research Engineer, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory - PNNL · Full-time 58 Lesson: Knowledge is power
  59. 59. 3. Dr. Buddhadeva Sahoo……. No Idea… what to do and where I am, What is research, Conference and journal????? Unstructured, Absence of supporter, Confusion, Unstructured problem formulation After a long time started my journey. (Relation build up) Motivation, Struggle, Believe, Friends, Seniors Stress, Patience, Publication, Achievement, Awards, PhD. Journey Recipient of SRF CSIR Scholarship Able to publish 22 Journals and 10 Conference papers during Ph.D.
  60. 60. 4. Dr. Pritam Bhowmick  At first, I never thought of PhD as a destination, I thought of it as a means to the destination. There will be many ups and downs along the way, but don't be discouraged. Some implanted dreams may seem like a mirage at times, but you have to take the responsibility of transforming that mirage into a freshwater reservoir. 60 Recipient of SCIR SRF Scholarship Publish 18 Journals during Ph.D..
  61. 61. 5. Late Dr. Sheetal Chandhak  Recipient of CSIR SRF scholarship  Recipient of SERB Post Doc. Scholarship  Publish 14 Journals during her Ph.D. 61
  62. 62. 6. Priya Ranjan Satpathy  Research Associate at CBIT Hyderabad and Narjan University, Saudi Arabia.  Ex-Senior Research Fellow at Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Govt. of India.  Review Editor of Frontiers in Energy Research and Frontiers in Built Environment journals.  Published more than 40 Research papers in high impact factor journals such as IEEE transactions and Elsevier, IEEE conferences and Springer book chapters during Ph.D.  Reviewed more than 200 journals of IEEE Transaction, Elsevier, Springer and many more.  Won many best paper and presentation awards during Ph.D. 62
  63. 63. Continue…  Ph.D. is not about completely relying on your supervisor and do nothing. Supervisors are like our mothers, they will always be with us but, all we have to do is to stand by our strength and believe that they will support us during our failure.  Focus, patience, dedication, stress and enjoyment are some of the important parameters of the Ph.D. If you never gone through these, your PhD is not complete. But, the happy thing is that, you are going to learn something that will help you throughout the life.  I accept Ph.D. is not only about doing a huge publication but, its all about developing learning skills, knowledge, behaviour, and depth analysis skill. But, publications add weightage to your career that will help you seek good jobs, positions, funding's and yes the most important that we all badly seek for Salary.  A Ph.D. with low publication can be a Teacher but, a Ph.D. with great publications can be a Teacher and Researcher. 63
  64. 64. 6. Dr. Manohar Mishra  Students should learn how to manage their time to achieve several targets within a certain time (within 4-5 years). Few targets in my viewpoints are:  Target 1: Try to understand at least 2 to 3 existing concepts (May be algorithms or theories or methods ) and its practical implementation followed by a complete dedication to improve one of them. (This will help to build your Post PhD. Career)  Target 2: Achieve a good writing skill. For this, students should have a habit of writing 100 words each day. (This will help to increase a self confidence) 64 Comes under 2% of Scientist in the world ranking by Stanford University, USA
  65. 65. Continue…  Target 3: Gain improved theoretical and practical knowledge on a particular subject (This will help to click an interview whether it is teaching or industrial job)  Target 4: Try to learn "How to formulate a research problem" and "How effectively you present your ideas", For this, you have to observe your guides and seniors closely. You need to develop your listening skill too. (This will help to build your personality)  Target 5: Try to publish at least 2-3 Good papers in reputable journals. (This will help to differentiate yourself from others)  Overall my suggestion is to develop self-confidence through belief in yourself. Divide your targets to several sub-targets with specific time. Don't compare your achievement to others and keep yourself mentally and physically happy. The Ph.D. is not a degree only it is a life of experiences. You will face many ups and downs, several worst days (when you fail to achieve a goal) and only a few happy moments (when you achieve your goals). You have to enjoy those moments and keep trying. 65
  66. 66. 7. Dr. Satya Ranjan Mishra  He did his Ph.D. from Siksha O Anusandhan in 2013 and since then actively engaged in his research work.  He has published nearly 167 papers in the international journals of repute and all are either SCI or Scopus indexed that can be viewed in various databases like Scopus, Research gate, Google scholar, etc.  With a huge citation of his work he took a position of Top 2% World Scientists by Stanford University, USA in the last two consecutive years i.e. 2020 and 2021. 66
  67. 67. Message from Dr. Satya Ranjan Mishra Relationship between Ph.D. Scholar and Supervisor  Other than research work the scholar-supervisor relationship is an important part of the doctoral process. In my point of view both should honest and humble in nature at their end. Before starting Ph.D. work there should be strong bonding between scholar and supervisor and afterword throughout the process the course will progress smoothly to achieve your target.  It is not only that the degree of a student but it is the first and foremost responsibility of a supervisor to present right direction so that the scholar can grasp knowledge from the right sources. Just remember the quote “Learning is a gift even when pain is your teacher. 67
  68. 68. Message from Dr. Satya Ranjan Mishra Personal experience:  Most of the Sunday’s four to five of my scholars came to me to progress their work since we are busy in the working hours at our University.  It is not possible that I can discuss with each at a time. But I never find my scholars are unhappy thinking that their travel from a long distance is a waste of time.  This makes me happy and it is because of their love towards me that can’t be expressed. 68
  69. 69. “Do not lose infinite hope by accepting finite rejections and failures” My PhD Mantra 8. Dr. Mrutyunjaya Sahani
  70. 70. 9. Prof. (Dr.) Renu Sharma 70 Message
  71. 71. Message from Dr. Renu Sharma  All great things start with the decision to try. It is common for students to be distracted and lack concentration. If you are a student who’s constantly looking for motivation, you are not alone! Quite often, students need a push to study and it is totally okay to feel lazy and unmotivated.  The point is to look around, get inspired, sideline the laziness, and jump right on track. The right kind of motivation helps you to achieve your goals and it encourages you to do more. The key is to understand that no matter how much you look around for motivation, the true motivation comes from you and with your decision to take the first step.  You take your first step and you will find your teachers standing next to you for every ups and downs of your life. 71
  72. 72. 10. Prof. (Dr.) Niranjan Nayak: HOD EEE  Dear Scholars,  Being or becoming a successful person is not an overnight process. A great career is the end product of facing continues struggle, rejections, and failures in the PhD life. Yes, PhD is not only to publish papers or getting a degree only but it is almost a life.  This is not like other degrees, It requires extreme self-motivation, focus, enthusiasm & love towards the research work, cool, sacrifice and peacefulness.  To be successful in a PhD life, you have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better, to get a little bit closer to your goals.  Wish You a Best Future 72
  73. 73. 11. Prof. (Dr.) Mira Das: Department of Chemistry  I can say from my long experience in teaching that:  “Every student is different; no two students respond in the same way. They want to learn, but in their way. So, we can never make any judgement about them. It is our task as teachers to find out not only what motivates each student to learn but also what demotivates them. If we can identify the reason what demotivates them and take away that reason, we can provide them a better learning environment.  As teachers, we have been given the opportunity to influence the world’s greatest resources, its youth. This profession allows us to make a difference in the lives of young people who will shape the future.  As students we have experienced the profound impact of our teachers on our lives, so also our students will experience in future.” 73
  74. 74. 12. Dr. Binod Kumar Sahu: Message Characteristics of a Good Ph. D. Scholar 1.

  75. 75. 13. Prof. (Dr.) Dillip Kumar Mishra: Dept. of Physics 75
  76. 76. Message from Prof. (Dr.) Dillip Kumar Mishra  Interdisciplinary research does not mean two or more people from multidisciplinary branches meet each other for a specific experiment .  Interdisciplinary research means the specific theory or experiment fruitfully explains unsolved issues of all the branches. The aspects of all the concepts meet each other to provide a fruitful explanation unsolved issues .  Research leads to Phd Degree, Respect, wealth etc…..but to have PhD degree is not Research.  There is no word of success or failure in Research. Every findings in a research is a result which tells how to move further.  Research deals with a continuous thought/involvement process on a specific problem to have a significant outcome. 76
  77. 77. 14. Prof. (Dr.) Kulamani Parida 77  Prof. Kulamani Parida is amongst World’s Top 2% Scientist 2020 with global rank 109 in Inorganic Chemistry ( Ranking based on C-score).  Rank 1 in the area of photocatalysis in India and 131 rank in the world based on Scopus author profile during 2016-2021.  Ex Chief Scientist & H  Distinguished Professor in Chemistry & Director, Siksha ‘O’Anusandhan (Deemed to be University)OD CMC Department, CSIR-IMMT Bhubaneswar  Citation: 23567  H-index: 81  H-10 index: 369  Total articles 549
  78. 78. Message from Dr. Kulamani Parida  I am extremely happy to know that Prof. Pravat Kumar Rout is delivering a talk entitled “My journey from Ph.D. scholars to supervisors”. In this connection, my message to the research scholars is as follows:  Ph.D. is not only an academic course that is bound by time limits, it’s a devotion, adherence to scientific knowledge, freedom of thinking, and a continuous journey of learning and uncovering new ideas, new renovation.  The motto of RS should not be degree oriented only it should be knowledge oriented. Degree-oriented research can’t be beneficial for RS as well as for the scientific society.  If an RS chooses Ph.D. as her/his career, she or he should keep topmost patience for it.  Research scholars should have positive mind set and sacrificial attitude.  Selection of a supervisor is very important before joining Ph.D. programme.  The foremost thing is that RS should consider the lab as their own belongings and should take care of up. 78
