I actively seek highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students and post-docs for my group. If you are interested in any projects or have other related interests, please contact me to apply. Please be very specific in your email and do not include attachments that are not in PDF form.
Like many colleagues, I receive several inquiries from prospective students, post-docs, and visitors who wish to join my research group. I cannot respond to all of these requests because of their sheer volume. If you try to contact me in this regard, please do not be offended if I do not reply. The department handles the graduate students’ admission process, not individual faculty.
