Well thank you for your interest in my lab!

Students interested in doing a M.S. or Ph.D. (as well as undergraduates looking for work) are welcome to write to me [[link to me]]. Also, visit the helpful graduate student section [[link to me]] of our departmental website for more information about graduate life at USF. But first, please read about the background you will need.

My lab is broad and does experimental, quantitative and theoretical work in ecology and evolutionary biology. See my lab's publications [[link to me]] for a sampling of my interests. Graduate students seeking an M.S. or Ph.D. should have some undergraduate training in ecology or evolutionary biology, and are willing to develop a thesis on parasitism, disease biology [[wiki link]], plant-insect interactions [[wiki link]], micro/macro-evolutionary processes [[wiki link]], systematics [[wiki link]], entomology [[wiki link]], behavioural ecology [[wiki link]], and/or evolutionary or ecological statistics [[wiki link]].

If you feel that you lack experience in these fields, don't worry, you'll have time to supplement your training as your thesis develops.

I am also happy to consider applicants with undergraduate training in applied math, probability and statistics, computer science or engineering—as long as you're willing to learn more biology and make biology the focus to your thesis.

My plan for 2013/2014 is to take one or two graduate students over the next year. Again, if you're interested, please send me an email with your CV and we'll talk!

So, that's the scoop. Let me know what you think and what questions you have.
