Hello all,

I'm doing a Master's Degree in Theoretical Astrophysics and now I need to decide in which topic I will do my final project and I wanted to ask you what would be the best option. I would like to do something that would make me have some future in the investigational path I choose here.

The topics I like the most are General Relativity and the theoretical approach to black holes, but I don't really know which thematics will really allow me to get a good path for my future (I mean, that will be a important field of study in the next years and I would be able to continue my work there more easily).

I would thank some help here which suggestions to decide in the fields I cited.

Thank you so much.

Hello, Vanadium 50, thank you for your response.

That's the problem here, I don't have the figure of an advisor yet, we have to talk with the professor we think that fits best to the topic we have in mind, but I still don't have anyone. I'm asking to get some good ideas and clearing my mind about who to speak.

That's backwards. You need to talk with at least prospective advisors first. Otherwise what good is it to pick a topic and find nobody is available to supervise it?
