Re: CV Format
I don't think the CV is the place for that. My professional experience also defined my research interests. But my Statement of Purpose explained it, not my CV.

I followed the same reasoning for my own CV. What achievement is more important for the job I'm applying to? My professional experience, or my research experience? I think my paper presentation does a better job at showing I have the qualifications to do a PhD than my professional experience. My professional experience can explain my research interests, but show very little about my qualifications, as professional experience usually is not very relevant for PhD applications.
