Prospective Students

If you are currently enrolled at the University of Alberta and you are interested in working with me, please drop by my reading group to get to know the group and our research interests, and/or take my grad class. I also recently gave a 20-minute talk to the department's graduate seminar giving an overview of my recent research directions.

If you are not currently enrolled at U of A and you are interested in working with me for your M.Sc., apply to my department and indicate an interest in working with me. There is no need to contact me directly.

I rarely take on new Ph.D. students from outside U of A unless I am familiar with their work from conferences I attend, or they come highly recommended from a colleague.
