Undergraduate students

If you are currently an undergrad student at UofM and would like to do some research project under my supervision, feel free to get in touch with me by email and include the following: list of math courses you completed with grades, any other relevant experience, preferences regarding the project. Our work can be done as a project course Math 4910 or through a summer research award for which you'd have to apply in a timely manner, see USRA and/or URA.

Potential graduate students (M.Sc. or Ph.D.)

If you are interested in pursuing a M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree under my supervision on a thesis topic related to my research interests (for M.Sc. this relation can be quite distant; for Ph.D. note that my research is of rather theoretical character, so if you have M.Sc. in applied mathematics, then you have to be ready for theoretical work and have excellent background), you must apply for graduate studies in the department as described here (M.Sc.) or here (Ph.D.).

Potential postdocs

PIMS postdoctorall fellowship is described here. It is rather mandatory that your research experience is close to my published work. Ideally we should complete a joint project before you apply.
