Congratulations Dr. Cendes.

What advice(s) would you give someone who is considering going for a doctorate?

I did my master's in Materials Science two years ago, and wasn't able to accomplish anything meaningful. This has made me seriously doubt my abilities, and if I'm even cut out for academia.

I think it'll be too late for me if I don't apply by the end this year, but even the very initial step of selecting a field, a college, and a guide seems immensely daunting. Any pointers on how to get started, and which one of the three to prioritize?

Thanks in advance!
