I’m interested in graduate students who want to pursue ecological research within coastal wetlands. Research topics should align with my current research programs. I generally provide a relatively structured research experience for MS students and expect PhD students to be relatively independent, but this approach is tailored to the experience, personality and research direction of each student. Past students have been funded by a combination of fellowships, research assistantships, and instructional assistantships. The most competitive applicants have research experience and a clear understanding of the kind of work that they want to do. If you’re interested in working in my lab, I encourage you to contact me directly to discuss your interests before you formally apply.
There are opportunities for interested undergraduates to work in my laboratory as research assistants. I'm most interested in students who can work over the summer as well as during the academic year, and in students who are considering a career in some aspect of the environmental sciences. I don’t have sufficient funds to provide salaries for everyone who is interested, so many students start in the laboratory as volunteers. Other students are eligible from the beginning for work-study support. Students who have gained some experience in the laboratory may be eligible for funding from the University or from my grants.
