Our publications page
lists papers and theses. (Most papers are published
The following is a 2012 article
about our research published in International
- I am looking for students who are curious, motivated,
reliable, and responsible.
- Prior biology or chemistry knowledge is helpful but NOT
required. I am happy to work with students outside of
physics, as my research is highly interdisciplinary.
- No minimum commitment requirements, BUT be aware you
need to commit at least 6 hrs/wk (2 credit hrs) to make
progress on an independent project. It's fine to "try
out" the lab.
- First priority should be your coursework. Research is
great experience, but it won't make up for poor academic
performance. Some semesters are tougher than others. If
you need to take a break from the lab, just keep me
Freshmen and sophomores, it's not too early. The earlier
you get involved and STAY involved, the
more substantial and meaningful the research experience.
INDEPENDENT STUDY AND RESEARCH
- Independent study (PHYX77) and research projects
(PHY440) are offered for credit during the school year.
- Paid and credit-based opportunities are usually
available during the summer.
- If you are interested in completing your Miami Plan
capstone (PHY488) with me, contact me at least semester
