  • Send me email and a resume if you are interested in working with me. Tell me what problems excite you most and they don't necessarily have to be related to one of my projects as I am always interested in getting into new areas. The best part about research is the flexibility and stabiity we have in exploring new directions -- and I am very interested in learning from you just as you may be interested in learning from me.
