For prospective students

I am accepting graduate students. If you think you might be interested, here are some things to consider.

General advice: If you think you might be interested in being someone's student, contact them before you apply and make it clear that you're read one of their papers or at least have read their website carefully. Ask questions about their research. Many of us see applications in which a student says they want to work with us but it's clear that they haven't taken the time to find out what we do. Making it clear that you know someone's work and could be a good fit for them makes a much better impression.
