Open Source PhD: Summer (May-Aug) 2018

·2 mins

This summer I wrote my second year project. As I gathered items, it didn’t make sense to list them all as “read” since I did a lot of skimming and extracting rather than wholesale reading. I’ve just sent the first draft of that project to my committee, but I’ll be open sourcing everything about that project when it’s approved.

Below is a list of books and articles I fully read this summer.
