Hey to all,

I am doing my PhD in food technology. Actually i was from pharmacy back ground. I finished my Bachelors and Masters from Pharmacy. My PhD is going fine and i am in the first year of my PhD. I need to know what i should do to get full knowledge of food technology? Whether should i concentrate only on my project or should i learn all the basics about food technology? I was wondering after i finish my PhD whether should i get a job in pharmacy industry or food industry? Should i left my pharmacy back ground and concentrate on my food technology? Is there any one doing their PhD in other field rather than their specialization in their Masters?

Any suggestions and advices are welcome....

Thank you very much for all your suggestions in my last thread.

Is it really necessary to publish your research work before completing your PhD? What effect it will make on your viva-voice? I am in my 7th month of my PhD and i really want to publish some papers before my PhD defence. Some of my seniors had different opinions. My officemate told me it didn't make any difference. One of my friend who is in his 3rd year published two papers. If publishing papers is important then how many papers we should aim for before completing the PhD?

Any suggestions are welcome. I find this forum today and i used to think that i am the only person having problems in my PhD. Now i come to know that they are lot of people like me. I feel very happy to find this forum as it gives lot of confidence and guidence from others. Thanks to all....

I recently (not too recently about 7 months) enrolled in my PhD. I was from pharmacy back ground but changed my field to Food technology. It took 2 months for me to adjust to the life IN NEW ZEALAND and to understand my research work. I started working in the lab and got some good results. My supervisors are happy with my progress. I too working hard in the lab to get my work done. Recently after my Easter holidays i lost interest in my work and i didn't even enter the lab for almost 15 days. I feel really bad and depressed. I even thought of quitting it. But i don't want to go back with a failure. Everyday i think i will start my work today. I will end up with wasting time infront of my computer reading news papers and wasting all the time. The last day i worked in the lab i didn't get good results. I don't know what i should do to come on to the track again.

While doing my Masters i used to study at least one paper every day during my project. Now i didn't do that also. Even though i kept lot of books in my home to read and i knew that i need to read a lot to understand the basics of food technology (which i don't know much exactly). But i end up with watching TV and wasting time with friends.

I have my conformation seminar in September before that i need to lot of experiments. I am worrying that if this continue then i can't finish my experiments also. I still need to do my review of literature.

Can anyone please advice me what to do and how to motivate myself to start my work and finish my conformation seminar successfully.

Thanks heaps to all
