Prospective PhDs

Are you interested in joining my lab as a PhD student? If so, here's what you should know.

I usually accept 1–2 new PhD students per academic year, which means I plan to interview prospective students every application cycle. So, no need to ask if I'll be accepting students next year; the answer is always, "Yes!"  

Are you thinking about applying to my lab? Do you have questions? I've put together a document just for you: an FAQ with answers to the most common questions I hear from people in your shoes. Please read through this document prior to emailing me your questions.

Grad students interested in working with me and my lab should apply to the School Psychology PhD Program here at USU. (Note. Although some of my current grad students are in School Psychology EdS Program, that program is no longer accepting students.) USU also has a Counseling & Clinical Psychology PhD Program, but I do not accept nor mentor students applying to that program.

If you like my work and lab, I encourage you to apply! The application deadline is December 1 of each year. More info about application evaluation criteria is available in my FAQ document and on our Department's "How to Apply" page.
