Finding a supervisor

One of the most common questions that I’m asked is “how do I find a supervisor? I’ve sent email but not had any replies.” The best thing you can do is to talk to your current professors. And I mean talk to them, don’t email, drop by their office and chat. Tell them what you want to do, who you think you want to work with, and ask them for advice. You can also ask them if they can help you to get in contact with a supervisor.
