Phil is the kind of guy who loves academia. He spends his leisure time reading texts in other languages (my husband doesn’t even do that!). So it didn’t surprise me that he won an award/prize for a paper he wrote.
Phil will be putting some of his winnings towards PhD applications and visiting schools. I have no doubt he will get accepted to his top schools. Let’s hope some of that money goes to something fun too!
Thanks Phil for being a good sport!
