Information for Prospective Students

It is always fun to work with bright, motivated students. However, our research projects have limited student openings, often require specific skills and can be very demanding. This is why we filter our applicants very thoroughly.

First off, the best way to approach me about doing research is with a recommendation by someone I know.

Second, the best students usually have a pretty good outline for a research proposal when they apply and they can communicate their ideas succinctly.

Finally, having some of the skills below can also make you more interesting, depending on the project:

Please do not waste your time emailing me directly if none of the above applies to you - and please do if it does. You are, however, welcome to submit your CV through the regular channels in any event.
