About PHD TV

Spread the word!

PHD TV illustrates and communicates the ideas, stories and personalities of researchers, scientists and scholars worldwide in creative, compelling and truthful ways.

PHD TV is an offshoot of the online comic strip "Piled Higher and Deeper".

We believe there is a gap between scientists and academics and how the public perceives what they do and who they are. If you'd like to help us close that gap, please join us, partner with us or contribute to PHD TV!


We partner with individual researchers and institutions to create engaging videos that communicate complex research ideas. If you'd like to join us or work with us, please e-mail us at support[-at-]phdcomics.com
