A Researcher’s Research Experiment

My default mode of research consists of many projects at once, spanning multiple disciplines.

As an experiment, I’ve decided to take:

  • 2 weeks to clear most of my mental cache
    • tying up loose ends on current projects
    • posting a few project ideas
  • 2-3 weeks to focus on one subject

I hypothesize that I will gain an understanding of my optimal work style.

Edit from the future (2022): I ended up picking up pure math as this aforementioned 2 to 3-week project and fell so deeply in love I decided to devote myself to mathematics professionally.
