Prospective Students – Splat Lab

My Mentoring Approach

My goal as a mentor is to facilitate critical thinking surrounding important concepts related to clinical science research. I personally want to help my mentees achieve whatever their professional goals might be. While I am committed to ensuring both research and clinical competence, the SPLAT Lab would likely be unsuitable for students who have little interest in the research process.

I personally hold multiple stigmatized identities, not the least of which is being a first-generation college student. I aim to create an atmosphere where my mentees feel comfortable discussing difficulties, uncertainties, and fears about academia. I am committed to having difficult conversations with you, listening to you, and supporting you in whatever ways that I can throughout the academic journey.

Imposter syndrome is real, and something with which I have struggled my entire career. It is one thing, among others, for which I will actively create discussion space. The SPLAT Lab represents a safe space for all members. Any students who end up in the SPLAT Lab, or who end up being SPLAT-adjacent, you belong here and in academia.

Prospective PhD Students

By September 2022, I will know if I will be reviewing applications to accept a PhD student for the Fall 2023 matriculation.

Studies have shown that women, people of color, and persons from less socially privileged backgrounds are less likely to apply for positions unless they meet every one of the qualifications listed. I am most interested in finding the best candidate, and that candidate may be one who comes from a less traditional background. I would encourage you to apply even if you do not meet every qualification listed for graduate admission. If you are unsure, please feel free to contact me to discuss your application.

Prospective Research Assistants

The SPLAT Lab is not currently accepting any additional RAs. However, the following application remains open for interested applicants to complete at any time. When the lab does accept additional RAs, all the application submissions will be reviewed.
