I'm currently a senior year student in the EE department at aBangladeshi University, and I'm 2 months away from graduation. I'm consideringapplying to US universities for graduate studies. I expect to graduate with aCGPA of about 3.8 (junior and senior year: 3.93). I am a bit confused as towhat to choose for my Graduate research field. My research experience includes two different fields. First, I participated in an International Competition,developing a Machine Learning system (software) for classifying the origin ofmedia recordings. Second, for my undergraduate research I've worked onnanophotonics, in particular, the enhancement of light trapping in novel solarcells via metal nanoparticles with computational methods. Now, while applying for graduate schools I'm confused as towhich line of research would be better for me. I'm highly enthusiastic about modern (quantum) physics ingeneral, so I am naturally drawn towards nanophotonics/solid state/ quantumelectronics. But, I'm unsure about the future of these fields and the kind ofjobs that these fields entail, and the chances of even getting a job. On the other hand, I am a good programmer, and I feel likeDeep Learning/ Machine Learning programs would be a safe and good choice,because of the possibility of a lot of application of these fields in the nearfuture. I do enjoy working on these also, but I have never before thought aboutgoing into these fields. So, could anyone who knows about the implications of workingon any these areas discuss the kind of work that I would be doing and putforward any suggestions as to which might be a better choice. Any suggestion ingeneral is welcome. Thanks a lot for your time.
