Most research profiles I've seen focus on a set of similar topics. Does anyone have experience in partaking in / conducting research in 2+ disparate fields? (especially if 1 of the fields is pretty different than what they studied in an institution)
- Pure mathematics and biology (e.g. solving an open math problem and studying purring in cats)
- Aerospace engineering and psychology (e.g. modeling vortices and researching psychological effects of isolation)
If a person had interest in researching a multiple, ranging topics, what advice would you give them? How do you think they should go about doing it? (if you'd recommend they do it at all)
Edit - I'm an undergraduate mechanical engineering student. I'm interested in eventually researching two topics, one in my chosen field, one in genetics.
