The Stoic Scientist is a blog about statistics, medicine, and philosophy.
My name is Timothy Pham, an outcomes researcher in Oklahoma City. I have a professional degree in Pharmacy, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Pharmacy Administration.
I hope to educate others on what I’ve learned and to continue my learning, hopefully for a good long while.
By the way, being a young PhD is pretty hard! You can’t faff about forever like in graduate school! It’s so easy to become distracted and discouraged by the vagaries of this world. I use Stoicism to keep my mind in focus and to work towards building a good life. That doesn’t mean I’m some dour Clint Eastwood type. It’s that I strive to respond to things rationally. I still allow myself to feel emotions, but I don’t let myself be crippled by them.
