Interested in joining the lab? Read on...

PLEASE NOTE: I am on professional leave from CSUF for the next few years. I will not be accepting any students into my research lab. 

Thank you for your interest. 

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students typically join my lab as 299L/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, and if you like to work independently on your own ideas, there may be a space for you! 

Graduate Students 

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 plant 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.
