As soon I enrolled in a PhD program my university assigned me a faculty advisor, and since then we have never communicated with each other as I don’t know what is the role of a faculty advisor? When should I approach him? Will he help me with my research?

A faculty advisor is a staff member who provides support and guidance to the PhD students. The advisor not only serves as a representative but also as a student advocate. An advisor is the one who gives ideas, shares insight, provides a different perspective and encourages the students.
