Prospective Students

If you are interested in studying towards a Masters or Ph.D. degree under my guidance, I invite you to contact me before applying to discuss your research interests. I am looking for individuals who have a bachelors or masters-level degree in engineering or the geosciences and have background in geostatistics, pattern-recognition, and remote sensing. Candidates having a multidisciplinary or other innovative academic or professional background are also encouraged. I do have few research fellowships that are competitive.

When you contact me, please include in your email or letter:

  1. Detailed statement (~2-3 paragraphs) of your research and professional interests, your field experience, and why you want to attend graduate school
  2. Your undergraduate/graduate major, university, GPA, and GRE scores

Thank you for your interest.
