Help on research materials

Hi everyone
I am a first timer, please I need help on Research topics for Masters, preferably in pannel data analysis, or comparisons of artificial nueral network and regression analyses.
The best way to find research topics is to read your instructor's latest publishments and search for a question that is left unanswered.
It is very helpful to choose a topic that your instructor is familiar with, so he can easily help and guide you to relevant resources. Plus, he will have a further incentive to help you, as it also helps his research.
