Prospective Graduate Students

I am always on the look out for new enthusiastic graduate students, especially ones who are self-motivated and driven by a desire to answer ecological questions that are relevant to the conservation and managment of vertebrates. Students will be expeceted to develop their own projects in either their own system or in one of the systems in which we currently work. Prospective students should contact me by email with a brief description of their research interests, GRE scores (percentages and raw scores) and CV/resume.


A number of opportunities exist for undergraduates to conduct research in our lab, especially with respect to local projects on mountain lions in the Santa Cruz Mountains and on small mammals on the forest ecology research plot (FERP) on upper campus.  Interested students should come to Chris’ office hours.
