Graduate Inquiries

Thank you for your interest in my research. Please note that our clinical science program faculty make admission decisions as a group, once we have reviewed all of the applications to our program. Thus, whether or not I will be admitting a student (or students) in any given year is determined by a combination of factors involving me, our lab and our research projects, and the entire clinical science program faculty. But I do always have graduate students in my lab and often take new students. Thus, if you are interested in Indiana University and/or my research, I would encourage you to learn more about my work (explore this website) and about IU’s program (look at both the department and clinical science program links), and then, please apply to IU!
