A PhD or Doctor of Philosophy is a postgraduate academic degree awarded by universities. Once one attains a PhD he or she may often be referred to as a doctor.

Physics studies are designed for those who want to explore the universe’s various fundamental aspects, such as energy, velocity and electricity. Students can learn about how the universe works through studying laws, experimentation and observation.

The United States of America is a large country in Northern America, often known as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". It also gathers over 310 million people which is the world's third largest population. It includes densely populated cities with sprawling suburbs, and vast, uninhabited and naturally beautiful areas at the same time.
