Prospective Graduate Students

I am always looking for enthusiastic, responsible, and hard-working students willing to learn and incorporate a spatial component into their projects. Learning can be achieved in different ways and I expect students to not conform with what they receive in the classroom. I expect students to be avid readers, participate in the lab meetings and departmental seminars, and engage in research while thinking how to transmit their knowledge to broader audiences.

Students applying to our Graduate Program receive support through Teaching Assistanthips. UPR-RP offers a limited number of fellowships to students making progress in their studies. I encourage and help prospective studens as well as sudents working already with me to apply for fellowships and grants. If you are interested in applying to our program and working with me I will be more than happy to guide you through this process. Always remember that writing takes time and therefore considerable planning to meet deadlines.
