I will be happy to work with anyone who is SERIOUS about science and life. All undergraduate, master, and Ph.D. students will be treated as Ph.D. students; that is, you are expected to be independent to some degree.
Oceanography is not the only subject that we can work on together. Students with interests in all aspects of ecology are welcome. Students with non-biology major are very welcome, especially if you can bring in new ideas for ecological studies and carry out multidisciplinary research. You are free to choose any system or method to carry out your research as long as it is interesting. If the system that you are interested in is beyond my knowledge, I will do my best to find you a co-advisor who is expert on that system. Students will be trained with quantitative skill in my lab.
To prospective postdocs
No requirement, as long as you do interesting science. I assume that you can work as an independent researcher.
