As geographers, we have the power to shape our world, by asking the right questions and carrying out research to answer those questions, leading to new and world-changing discoveries!
But where do we even begin? How do we come up with a research idea? How do we go about producing and analysing evidence? And how do we share our discoveries with others?
In this video, the first in a series of human geography research videos, we team with human geographer Prof. Ian Cook, to ask How do you come up with a new and interesting research idea?
