Graduate Students mentored in my lab are working on an M.S. in Biology through SDSU’s Evolutionary Biology program or a PhD in Evolutionary Biology offered jointly between SDSU and the University of California, Riverside. I generally accept one or two students per year.
I am always looking for motivated, hard-working students that know why they want to attend graduate school. Students do not necessarily have to work on one of my own projects, and I encourage students to develop their own ideas. Check out the Lab Members page to learn more about student projects that I have sponsored in the lab.
If you are thinking about applying, I suggest you look through my web page and read some of the papers we have published. Then, please send me an e-mail describing your research interests and why you would like to work in my lab. Please also include a resume or CV with GPA and GRE scores. Also, please indicate whether you intend to apply for the MS, PhD, or whether you are potentially interested in both programs.
