If you are a prospective Ph.D. student and would like to work with me:

You should apply and be admitted to the UMSI PhD program. You are encouraged to include my name as a potential advisor in your application.

I also enjoy working with motivated undergraduate and master's students. 

If you are a current undergraduate or master's student at U-M (including beyond UMSI) and would like to work with me:

 

Please read at least one of my publications. 

 

Then write 1-2 reflection paragraphs and summarize the article in your own words, stating what you found most interesting, and describing how you might extend this work.

 

What you write about will not necessarily be what you may work on with me, but this exercise allows me to understand your thought process, and assess whether there is a good fit between my work and your interests.

Once you have done so, please email me and include your reflection paragraph(s), CV, and transcripts. 

If you would like to request a letter of recommendation from me, please fill out this form
