Get involved
Our lab is composed of many talented graduate and undergraduate students. Although much of our research is directed by graduate students pursuing their doctoral degrees, some projects are run by undergraduates in our lab. Indeed, undergraduates in our lab have conducted senior thesis projects that have been published in the very best journals in the field! We encourage interested students to contact us for more information, and they can complete our research assistant application form to be considered for joining our research team.
