Anybody from Yale?

Postby Nishikata » Mon Dec 10, 2018 1:22 pm

Hi, for current Yale students, i need a favor:

May I know if professor Nicholas Read and Prof. Ramamurti Shankar are still actively doing research? Do they still take graduate students?

Their page seems outdated, i cannot easily find this information there.

I know it is best to contact them personally, but given the application deadline is near I wouldn’t want to make a wrong step that will hurt my chances. :D

Do you know how the arXiv works?:)
https://arxiv.org/search/?searchtype=au ... =Read%2C+N
^^ definitely still active

https://arxiv.org/search/?query=Ramamur ... rce=header
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramamurti_Shankar
^^ doesnt look active, from wikipedia looks like textbooks

Besides arxiv, there's also [url]http://inspirehep.net/?ln=en[url] which gives the full publication history for various researchers! I found this to be super helpful when look for prospective advisors!

Thanks. I already knew about arXiv, inspire,and GS.

Publishing few articles per year as a professor is one thing, but the worrysome part is that they do not seem to have new graduate students as per the school’s webpage. If we see the author in Read’s recent publication, the first author (J. Holler) is his fifth-year graduate student so I suppose he’ll have none when she graduates in a year or two. That’s what i am worried about, usually professors stopped taking students when they are about to move to another institution or to retire. Hence i am asking for Yale’s insiders here if they know of rumors or news circulating in their institution. :D

Oh yes Inspire is the best! I just didn't include it because, as the name says, it is only high-energy and related fields :)

Huh! Good thinking! I hadn't thought about that! If I ran across a prof who wasn't active, or declining rapidly, I just took them off my list of potential advisers! Good thinking on your part!
