Beyond the PhD – CREST Series 2: How would you define a PhD?

Last year, CREST introduced a new series of videos on the PhD theme. Léa Bou Sleiman & Martin Mugnier were interviewed for this first episode of “Beyond the PhD”. The 4th year economics PhD students present their career at CREST and their participation in the International Job Market.

In 2024, the Beyond the PhD series is focused on the definition of a PhD.

In doing so, four PhD students from CREST have participated in this interview series:

  • Reda Alami Chentoufi, 1st year PhD student in Finance-Insurance (CREST-GENES)
  • Emma Bonutti d’Agostini, 1st year PhD student in Sociology (CREST-GENES)
  • Yiyun Zheng, 2nd year PhD student in Economics (CREST-Ecole polytechnique)
  • Clara Carlier, 3rd year PhD student in Statistics (CREST-GENES)

With the participation of Prof. Emmanuelle Taugourdeau, Research Director at CNRS and Deputy Director at CREST, all four PhD students answered some questions about the PhD program: how would they describe it, what is of importance in a PhD and their recommendations to future PhD students.

All videos are now available on the CREST’s YouTube account.

We want here to promote the interview highlights that key points of all interviews in one.
