    I'm curious what traders with Ph.D. degree say about how useful are strong scientific abilities in successful trading.

    I'm an ongoing doctor student (informatics) and I intend to establish skills during the course that can be beneficial in development of trading strategies. (I do not want to be an option-pricing expert, also, i'm not going to focus on performance improvements of related model solving algorithms) :)

    opinions, experience & suggestions of Ph.D. holders from this area are highly appreciated...
