University of Waterloo Students
If you are a student and would like to meet with me outside of office hours, please follow these instructions for making an appointment.

I am always interested in working with excellent students who are interested in my research program. Undergraduates and graduate students already at Waterloo should email me to set up an appointment so that we can talk about common interests and how we might start working together.

Prospective Graduate Students
If you are a prospective student interested in my research program, please be sure to list me in your application and to mention me in your statement of purpose as someone you would be interested in having as an advisor. Feel free to send me an email letting me know of your application. It is very helpful in your statement of purpose and email to explain why you are interested in my research program. In general, unsolicited emails regarding admission to the graduate program will not receive replies from me, i.e. please do not expect a response to your email.

Please note that I will not respond to emails asking to be admitted or asking if I am taking on students. I do not have internship opportunities for non-Waterloo students.
