Lessons in Retrospect: Two PhD Co-Advisors

Introduction

Back in September 2020, I identified my advisors and a project for my doctoral study in the Mathematics Department at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. I had a very carefully thought out plan for how to identify an advisor(s) that would be a good fit for me given my interests, needs, and career goals. This plan was part of my larger idea of how to become a visible entity in the department as a graduate student relatively new to the Ph.D. program. I told this story here almost a year ago.
