Summary: Thank you for your interest in graduate study in my lab. At Yale, graduate students apply
directly to the department (Ecology and Evolutionary Biology) through the graduate
school and are admitted by the department rather than by a specific faculty member.
There are a limited number of positions each year, and the application process can be
very competitive. Good grades and GRE scores help as well as excellent letters of
recommendation and previous research experience (which should be described in the
`personal essay' along with your future research interests). However, it is also helpful to
have contact with faculty in the department with whom you might study or `rotate' and if
you do this it should be mentioned on your application. For more general information on
the graduate program in the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology please
consult the department web page (http://www.yale.edu/eeb/). For more information
about the application process please consult the graduate school
(http://www.yale.edu/graduateschool/admissions/index.html).
In my lab, we study behavioral and evolutionary ecology using a combination of
empirical and theoretical approaches. I conduct field work on the ocellated wrasse in the
Mediterranean and the tessellated darter which occurs in Connecticut and most of eastern
North America. I use a combination of modeling techniques including population
genetics, game theory, dynamic programming and individual-based simulations that
combine optimality and genetic methods. Although I do not require that every student
combine theory and empirical approaches for their own research, I do require that my
