There are a lot of Q&A about research in physics here. I'd like to know more about examples of your own career path. Did you change your subject, how did it work out? Did you do work mostly independently, and if so, when did you start? How did you pick your school? I'm a 23 years old physics master student. I went to a university which offered theoretical physics, graduated as a bachelor, went on an exchange and ended up studying for a Master's degree in China. I get to choose my own research topic, of which I am very glad about, and now I'm wondering about where to go after I complete my studies here.
