Prospective graduate students
If you are a prospective graduate student, please contact me and describe: 1) your academic background and work experience, 2) your motivation for pursuing graduate school and the degree you are interested in (i.e. PhD or MSc), 3) your research interests, and 4) why you want to work with me.
Prospective postdocs should email me so we can discuss research interests. I am willing to sponsor independent research fellowships and collaborate on funding proposals for projects of mutual interest.
