Summary of the talk

Rigorous research design relies on crafting a good research question. In this talk, I will walk participants through one of the most effective strategies to build a research question: through the logic of puzzles. I will explain what a puzzle is in social science research and how we can devise a good research question thinking about putting together the pieces of the puzzle.
