I am always looking for highlymotivated students with whom to work, and I am generally able to support my PhD students on research assistantships for some of their time in graduate school. My students have gone on to postdocs and faculty positions in academia as well as research positions in industry. Some of the topics my current students are working on are included in the list below.
[Please note that for portability, I have converted as many papers as possible
to pdf format. Older papers may appear fuzzy when viewed
on your screen. They print cleanly, however.]
