For Prospective Students

Thanks for your interest in our research program!


Graduate Student Openings

Although we welcome enthusiastic and focused graduate students, we are unable to accept new students into our group at the University of Tennessee this year. Please look out for our new group at Northern Arizona University.

We encourage you to learn more about other research in the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department at the University of Tennessee. Feel free to contact individual faculty listed here.


Undergraduate Research Opportunities

We appreciate and enjoy having undergraduate students as contributors to our group. However, we are unable to provide mentorship to undergraduate researchers at this time.


Diversity Statement

Radical diversity and inclusivity are native qualities of our research group that support each of us, individually and collectively, in making the maximum contribution for good to our community and our world.
