Be involved in/ engaged in Are these two phrases equivalent when we talk someone takes part in an activity? For example: 1. I'm involved in the research that I'm interested in . 2. I'm engaged in the research that I'm interest in. There are no passive implication in the sentences. Do these phrases mean the exact same in this context? Thanks for you comments!

Involved in and engaged in do mean the same thing in this context, yes. Both sentences should end "that I'm interested in." But, to be honest, we would not normally say "I am involved in (or engaged in) the research that I'm interested in." It is much more likely that we would give a name to the type of research. For example: "I am involved in (or engaged in) research into renewable fuels."
