    Look at which programs have classes that go off of classes that you have previously taken. Find a number of schools you are interested in, and look at their Phd program outline. Contacting them would also help you since you will get first hand knowledge from those within the school system.

    There are so many areas and applications that we really can't make this decision for you. Research into it and talk to some people in the field to find a project or topic you'd be interested in studying. I can say that from what you said it sounds like you'd be good at kind of being a bridge between the engineers at something experimental like a particle accelerator and the physicists running it. Look into experimental particle physics if this interests you, signal processing would be important for the technology that gathers data at some of these experiments.
