Prospective Students

Thank you for your interest in applying to UC Davis! I supervise graduate students in the Linguistics prorgam and in the Computer Science program. The only way to join my lab as a UC Davis graduate student is to apply directly to these graduate programs. I cannot evaluate applications outside of the regular admissions process. Please do not send me your materials by email. If you have a question about my research or about UC Davis, please feel free to contact me. If you simply want to let me know you are applying, there is no need to contact me. In the application, you will have an opportunity to list faculty members you are interested in working with at UC Davis. If you select me, I will see your application during the admissions process.


Q: Are you accepting new students this year?
A: Yes.

Q: How can I join your lab?
A: If you are already at UC Davis, or if you have already been admitted, please feel free to contact me. Otherwise, you can apply directly to the graduate programs in Linguistics or in Computer Science.

Q: How likely is it that I will be admitted?
A: I cannot answer that. The only way to have your application evaluated for admission is to apply.
