Hey, I'm having a big problem with my master's (MSci) project, in the sense that there isn't one! My supervisor doesn't actually know what he's going to arrange as a project yet and its been a month into it, and he doesn't seem to offer any helpful insight. He keeps asking if I have any ideas on what could be interesting to look at, I mention one arbitrary physics word and then he says go do that, without thought, but I literally am completely new to the field and I have all of my lectures this term and group project work too, so no time but to do work, I can't read the entire backlog of current work. It's like I'm being expected to know an entire research area (Topological Insulators) and know exactly what has and hasn't been looked at. I've worked as hard as I can and have been coding Haldane/Kane-Mele models, at the same time as learning what I can, and experimenting around with models and adding various perturbations and then I wrote a full report on it, but the work has no context! I don't know where this project is going and I'm worried I'm not going to have anything to write about in my final dissertation at the end of the year! I'm usually really good at project work but I can't be if there's nothing to progress in. It could mean I fail my final year after 4 years of work. This has really put me off research and going further with Physics. Is there anything I can do? Help appreciated. Thanks.
