Will I be your advisor? I typically say yes to every Yale student with interests that overlap mine, and who’s willing to work hard. Please contact me or come by office hours to discuss.
Before coming, however, please take a look through my research and projects (see tabs above) to see if there’s a fit, and read the advising section that applies to you:
- General undergraduate advising (including course tips)
- Will I supervise your senior essay or independent study?
- Graduate advising
- Will I write you a letter of recommendation?
Also see the list of advice posts on the right sidebar for thoughts on development, careers and graduate school.
