People frequently ask us what high-impact research in different disciplines might look like. This might be because they’re already working in a field and want to shift their research in a more impactful direction. Or maybe they’re thinking of pursuing an academic research career and they aren’t sure which discipline is right for them.
In any case, below you will find a list of disciplines and a handful of research questions and project ideas for each one.

They also represent projects that we think would be useful to pursue from a longtermist perspective.
