Prospective Undergraduate Students

Any undergraduate that joins my research will be given full training at every step. Therefore, I welcome students at all experience levels. I only ask that students be excited about science and learning new skills, have a good work ethic, be detail-oriented, and work well independently and with a team. Outstanding undergraduates have gone on to present at regional and national conferences.

If you are a full-time student at the University of Kentucky searching for independent research credits (e.g. BIO395, BIO398, ABT395, or Honors), please send an email with the following information:
