I am planning to apply for a PhD position in Physics in the US.
I have worked in several areas in physics (let's say, A, B and C), but there are also areas D and E, which highly interest me, but I have not performed any research in these topics. I have written in my SOP that I am interested to work in D and E (also, interested to further explore A, B and C).
Many people include "Research Interests" in their CV. I plan to make a section like the following.
I have also mentioned my projects and publications related to A, B, C in another section of the CV.
I wonder whether it is a good idea to include D and E in the list of "Research Interests" in the CV, as it is among the topics which I am interested to work on, but I have no research experience in it.
I saw the answer to this question, which says If you state that something is one of your top interests but this topic does not appear anywhere else in your CV this looks suspicious. Does that mean I should now include D and E in this list in the CV?
