To Prospective Graduate Students and Postdocs

I welcome highly motivated graduate students who are interested in landscape ecology, urban ecology, and sustainability science to join our research team at LESL.  To work with me directly in my lab, you may apply to one of the graduate programs in either School of Life Sciences (SOLS), or School of Sustainability (SOS). 

Application information on graduate study in SOLS is available at http://sols.asu.edu/grad/index.php.

Application information on graduate study in Sustainability is available at http://schoolofsustainability.asu.edu/future-students/graduate/index.php

Financial support in the form of Teaching Assistantship or Research Assistantship is available on a competitive basis.
