Meetings on 20-21 June

I'd like to have a 30 minute meeting with all summer undergraduates on either 20 or 21 June to kick off the summer (I am out of town the week of 13 June, when many of you start). This meeting should be with me and (one of) you co-mentor(s). Please check with the appropriate co-mentor before signing up, to make sure they can also make that time.

Original project descriptions

This section contains a list of project areas where I will be supervising projects this year. (OBSOLETE:) Students interested in writing proposals for SURF projects should contact me via e-mail to discuss what areas they are interested in and talk through possible SURF proposal topics. All applications should go through the normal SURF application process, described at
