Workshop on Research Development (KPHD-520-0) PhD students will be asked to present their research ideas to a group of faculty and students. Research ideas can be new or they can be well-developed. Each student is expected to present multiple research ideas. Presentation of a research idea involves situating the idea in the relevant literature, outlining the type of results/analysis that the student expects to carry out, and if possible, the possible "punch lines" of the research project. Emphasis will be placed on the evaluating the viability of research ideas as job market papers.
