  1. Although I was in the department of A, I became more and more inclined to B. I was looking for more opportunities to study B and to make up my B's background.

    Which one is better, "I became more and more inclined to B" or "my interest became more and more inclined to B".

    If it were you, how would you rewrite the above quote?

  2. Suppose C and D are related directions. Neither contains the other as a subset. I was doing some things in C, and later I was moving to do things in D. Can I say I branch my interest into D?

Thanks!

  • Are A and B different fields of study? – Tyler James Young Dec 10 '13 at 20:49
  • Yes, for example A is biomedical engineering, and B is mathematics. C is computer vision and D is machine learning. – Tim Dec 10 '13 at 20:50

    What about: I became more interested in B. As for the second part, I might use, My interest branched into D. – J.R. Dec 10 '13 at 22:39

Here's how I would probably write it:

Although I was in the [biomedical engineering] department, I became more and more inclined towards [mathematics]. I was looking for more opportunities to study [mathematics] and to solidify my [mathematics] background.

As for 2., I'd say:

I was studying [computer vision], then I branched into [machine learning].

As far as I know, interests don't branch; people do.
