Information for interested students

Research in my lab is carried out collaboratively among students and technicians and with other investigators, many of whom are affiliated with the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study. We generally work on projects as a team, assisting with each other’s work and broadening experiences for all.

I encourage undergraduates seeking research experience to contact me. We have opportunities for summer work in the lab and field, and for lab work during the academic year. Motivated students who are interested in developing their own projects are encouraged to pursue an Undergraduate Thesis in my lab.

Graduate Students interested in working with me should expect to develop research projects in some area of terrestrial ecosystem ecology related to nutrient cycling, plant-soil interactions, or soil communities. Please contact me directly about interests in applying to our graduate programs.

I accept Masters and PhD students in the Zoology and the Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology (EEEB) programs. Students admitted to either of these programs are usually guaranteed teaching and/or research assistantships, and students in my lab are expected to apply for additional funding.
