I have several student projects available on topics of particle dark matter theory and astroparticle physics.

I am currently available to supervise:
+ Summer undergraduate research projects at Stanford,
+ Stanford University graduate students, or
+ Stanford University graduate student rotations.

If you are applying to Stanford and would like to work with me, please feel free to get in touch with any questions.

Stanford University graduate applications can be submitted to the Physics Department here.

The application deadline for the 2022-23 academic year is 11:59pm Pacific Stanford Time, Tuesday, December 14, 2021.

If you have already been admitted to Stanford, please feel free get in touch to discuss possibilities.
