Hannah's Advice for Future AMS Researchers
I tell all my AMS friends that the best way to come up with a topic
is to write down everything and anything they are possibility interested in. When I was trying to come up with a topic, I wrote down over 20 ideas on post-it notes and organized them on a board. Over time, I added and discarded various topics and ideas about how to go about my AMS proposal. I started writing my AMS proposal draft very early (October for a February deadline). This helped because I had lots of time to go to my AMS advisor for help, talk with my contacts with the field school, and my professors. I put as much detail as possible in this proposal which helped me be more organized when I was actually doing my project.
