New Students Looking for a Supervisor (advice from professor
Domestic grad students:
I am always interested to receive email from prospective students who are
Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada.
I suggest that you read my advice page that answers questions such as:
"Will you be my Master's/PhD supervisor or post-doctoral host?" and
To reduce the chance that I lose track of your email and associated
documents (cv, transcripts),
and avoid wasting the time of me requesting the same information over several emails,
it is preferable to also complete this information form.
International grad students:
If you are neither a Canadian citizen nor permanent resident of Canada,
then due to the enormous volume of requests it is
unlikely that I will be able to give you a personal response.
Prospective international Master's (but not PhD) students also face international tuition
fees---which present an insurmountable barrier to most non-residents, and
which unfortunately I am unable to fully offset with research funding.
If you are in the fortunate position of being able to partially fund
your own significant expenses, and have read my
advice page ("Will you be my Master's/PhD supervisor or post-doctoral host?"
and related questions),
then please fill out
this information form.
The information that it requests, and the instructions on the advice page, serve as a first filter to test whether you are a serious candidate.
Prospective international students hoping to begin a PhD under me should
also send a preliminary PhD research proposal, to signal that you are serious and increase your chances of a response.
Current PhD students (supervised and *co-supervised):
