Thanks for your replies. Yes, I have a co-guide. But, I don't talk to him that often.
Actually we have weekly group meetings booked in advance. Today we had a meeting which went for 40 min. I didn't get a chance to talk anything related to my work or what I did the last week. The meeting was supposed to be for 1hr 30 min. She left for another meeting. This is really frustrating. Do you guys actually experience this kind of stuff, especially when you are doing PhD ?
I am a PhD student from India and its been over a year since I have joined. I feel like I'm doing good work in the area I have chosen. My guide is happy with my work and the ideas I propose. My only problem with my guide is that, she has over 12 PhD students under her and whenever I want to talk about my work she is not available, and because of that I get frustrated.
Currently, I don't have any papers published. But, I did good amount of work which is publishable. So, I am thinking of publishing the paper and then quit PhD to apply elsewhere. But, for this to happen I would have to wait atleast for two more years. And also, to apply for PhD I will need recommendation letters, which I think my guide will not give me one. I can get recommendation from my undergraduate professors. So, I think, by the time I leave, I will have atleast two research papers.
In the papers I publish, my guide name will be there and won't that be odd, if my guide doesn't give me a recommendation letter? Will it have any effect on my application?
I would like to get some advice on whether it is a good decision to leave and apply elsewhere?
