How do I Pick a Research Topic?

You can find a research topic by asking yourself some questions. No answer is incorrect!

  • What are you most interested in the world?

  • What makes you angry? What would you like to change?

  • What would you like to create?

  • What would like to spend your time doing?

  • What are major trends in academia right now, in industry, in the media?

  • What are you studying in your classes?
