Graduate Students

Students interested in joining my lab should contact me directly to discuss their interests, as well as submit an application to the Tulane Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Graduate Program.  I encourage my students to collaborate with me on existing projects and study systems, as well as develop their own research interests.  I am willing to advise students working in other areas so long as their questions are close enough to my own areas of expertise for me to advise them effectively.

Financial Support - The Tulane Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department provides support for Ph.D. students through teaching assistantships. Research assistantships may also be available, as funding permits.  In house funding for exceptional students is sometimes offered through the department in the form of a four-year fellowship from the Louisiana Board of Regents. Further details can be found on the EEB graduate studies website.

Graduate students are also encouraged to apply for outside funding. See links below:
