Undergraduate students typically join my lab through one of three pathways: the U-ACRE program, as 299L or 499L students, or as student assistants. If you are interested in joining my lab, please be sure to take a look at the type of work we do in the lab before contacting me. If you are pre-medical or interested in getting bench experience, this may not the lab experience for you. However, if you are interested in ecology, biology education, or agriculture, there may be a space for you!
Graduate students in my lab typically work on their own independent research projects. While I am open to working with students to develop projects linked to my research, I believe that when students develop their own projects they get much more out of the graduate experience. While I will always provide guidance and support, I encourage my students to work at their own pace. Thus, it is important that students in my lab are self-motivated and willing to communicate.
I am currently accepting graduate students interested in science pedagogy research, especially in focusing on computer-based instruction and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). If you have a specific ecology project in mind, I may be able to support you as well. If you are interested in pursuing a master’s degree at CSU Fullerton in my lab, please contact me by email. Include a brief description of yourself and your research interests. Attach a current version of your CV as well.
