Advising and Assistants


I welcome new graduate and undergraduate students who want to work with me. Please consider the following before contacting me:

  1. Find out whether any of my research is of interest to you.
  2. Graduate students:
    • If you are a graduate student in our graduate program, please prepare a short, one-page summary of what your research is supposed to be about, which literature it builds on, and, most importantly, which research question it will answer and how.
    • If you have not yet been admitted to our graduate program, please first visit our graduate program webpage for more information.
  3. If you are an undergraduate student interested in becoming a research assistant (e.g., as part of a directed research course): please send me a transcript, a writing sample, and provide a short description of why you are interested in such a position and briefly list the quantitative methods training you have received so far. If you have not been trained in quantitative methods, you should at least be eager to acquire such skills to enjoy working in my group.
  4. I expect all graduate students and research assistants to have analytical and research design skills. For graduate students, I expect at least some training in game theory and basic methodological skills that include some basic familiarity with multiple regression analysis and experimental designs.
