Prospective Graduate Students

I am always happy to discuss potential future research opportunities for graduate students in my lab. Before contacting me, prospective students should:

  • Become familiar with the principle research focus of my lab by reading all relevant material on this website and at least browsing the abstracts of recent papers published by this lab.
  • Prepare a brief statement of research interest showing how your goals align with those of the lab.
  • Include a resume/C.V. detailing academic and industrial experience
  • Ensure that you meet all entrance requirements as listed on the department graduate studies pages

Please note that I cannot respond to random emails expressing only a generic interest in pursuing graduate studies in my lab.
