PROSPECTIVE GRADUATE STUDENTS

If you are interested in one or more of the topics presented on this website, and considering graduate study, please feel welcome to get in touch by email. But please do not send through a copy/pasted generic email --- it will likely get deleted without a response.

If you are someone who identifies as belonging to an under-represented group in academia, I'd especially encourage you to get in touch!
