    Conduct a research in/"in the field of"

    Hello,

    Can we leave out "in the field of" in the following sentence and instead use "in" right before the subject ? If not what are the alternatives to use instead of "in the field of" ?

    A- "He conducted a comprehensive research in the field of fluid-solid interaction"
    B- "He conducted a comprehensive research in fluid-solid interaction"

    Thanks a lot.

    Either version is acceptable. You will also see 'research on'.

    However, you should omit the article 'a' regardless of which version you choose - 'research' is non-count.

    Thanks a lot for the explanation. Can we also use "on this topic" or "on the topic of"? For example:

    "Consequently, In order to have a better understanding of the subject, he conducted further theoretical and experimental studies on this topic"
