Is it possible for you to align PhD. and your current job?

I am in a similar position as you. My PhD. topic is focused on the same research area as my job in tech company so I can do both together.

If it is not possible I would advise not pursuing PhD. and continue self-learning. The opportunity cost of PhD. is not worth it in my opinion.

Hey, thanks for your advice. I'm not sure if I can do that as my company's focus is completely different to an ML research required for a PhD.
