Look up the people who work in the area you are interested in and align your interests with theirs. Professors like to work with students who are passionate about the research they are doing. For example, if you are interested in Swine nutrition, look at the publications by the professors in the department to get an idea of what specific research questions they look at and see if there is anything that matches your interests.At the same time, be open and flexible.
