INTERESTED IN JOINING?

Undergraduate students of all majors and MS students in Physics or Biology are encouraged to send me an e-mail.  My preferred "schedule" for new students is to have them start during the summer and then continue their research during the academic year.  Prospective research students should have completed – or be close to completing – introductory coursework in chemistry, physics, and mathematics (calculus).  Coursework in introductory biology, statistics, and/or biochemistry is also useful, but not a requirement.  Previous computer programming experience is not required.
