Literature review is a big part of my life. I usually use “[Scientist] conducted a research using data from” to state a previous study.
Do you have recommendations of other verbs to use? I am tired of keeping using conduct (and I am not sure whether it is correct) and really want to diversify.
You actually can’t conduct a research, because it is not a count noun.
But you can conduct, do, pursue, guide, lead, head, preside over, or engage in research.
Other more courageous terms include chaperon, shepherd, and trailblaze.
