    Praneeth,


    You may find it difficult to research unless you work in academia or for a company research department. That is if you need to make a living wage while you research. Many research efforts take years to turn into a real businesses.

    Alternatively, if you have a great idea, a good pitch and some preliminary data indicating a possible success in a valuable area of technology, you might attract some venture capital investors. Energy savings and biological routes to circular economy products are popular. Think deeply about solutions that reverse global warming.

    Good luck.

    I have found that I have done some of the best problem solving and/or research in response to a major issue. Unfortunately, a number of major issues exist in our world today, such as food shortages, clean water shortages, environmental issues, plastic pollution, climate change, air pollution, and water pollution, and on and on.

    I recommend selecting an area in which you have an academic background and life experience. Obviously, it is very helpful to select an area that interests you. It is important to note that your work efforts will be strengthened if you believe that the work that you are doing will help others.

    I recommend following the news as well as taking advantage of all the information provided by AIChE. I have found interesting stories at wsj.com and the bbc news app on my iPhone. I also recommend reading Chemical Engineering Progress each month. As you develop an awareness of all of the problems, I hope that you will find a suitable topic for your particular skills and abilities.

    I hope this content is helpful, and I hope some other members will offer additional advice.

    Sincerely,

    Tom Regrut

    You have to choose based on your interests and background, but generally, biotechnology, nanotechnology and renewable energy areas have the most potential of research these days. On top of that, everything related to Industry 4.0 has the potential of research, yet you need to have a good understanding of programming and logical thinking and/or you have to team up with an IT/software engineer.

    Review your past experience and focuse on three subjects that you are really passionate about. Then, as others have said, look for the resources available to you on those subjects that really move your spirit. Whichever you really enjoy working on will give you the energy to spend long hours working on it and gathering resources for your research success.

    Above all, enjoy what you do and do what you enjoy !
