Prospective Students

I am interested in mentoring students at all levels (undergraduate, masters, and doctoral) who are creative, independent, hard working, and willing to challenge themselves intellectually. 

If you're a prospective graduate student interested in applying to my lab, you should first check out the general information on our Masters and Doctoral programs in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. This will give you basic details on our minimum admission requirements, cost of study, financial support, and timeline. You can then email me to see if I am able to accept any new students in the next academic year cycle. I also typically request that prospective students send me a current curriculum vitae and some sort of statement of research interests. Your CV should include your GPA, three professional references, and details concerning your research experience (e.g., publications, scientific presentations, projects you’ve been involved in, etc). 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at
