Graduate Students - Joining the Lab

PhD Students

I am interested in working with creative and motivated students who have research experience in ecology, mathematics, statistics, or computer science. Students will develop an independent research program related to my research. Please contact me with a description of your research interests, your CV, GRE scores and your GPA.

In the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology graduate program, students are admitted by a graduate committee and students are not accepted without first being recommended by the faculty they intend to work with (so you must convince me first!). Accepted students in EBIO are promised academic year support via Teaching Assistantships. I have Research Assistantships available to support our work on range limits and climate change. I also expect students to apply for outside funding (e.g. NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, EPA STAR Fellowship, NSF Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants). My students have been very successful in securing such funding. Students accepted to the Interdisciplinary Quantitative Biology program will be supported by a generous fellowship while in that program.
