Prospective Students

Interested in joining the PA Epi lab?

Prospective Graduate Students  -  Seeking applicants for fall 2019!
The Department of Kinesiology offers both a Master's and Ph.D. program with a specialization in Physical Activity Epidemiology. Please refer to the department's graduate admissions website for full information about the requirements and curriculum. Please note that there is flexibility around prerequisites. Acceptance of new graduate students into my lab is determined by the academic strength and interests of the student as well as funding availability. Most students will have an undergraduate major in Kinesiology, Public Health, Psychology, Statistics, or another health-related field. Depending on your career goals, you may also wish to consider graduate study in the Department of Population Health Sciences and I am able to advise students in that program as well. Please contact me with any questions you may have. It is helpful if you can send a CV/resume with your inquiry. 
Current UW - Madison MPH Students
If you are interested in doing a Capstone project related to physical activity and public health, I would be happy to meet with you.
Undergraduate Students
If you are interested in gaining research experience, please email me. I love mentoring undergrad students but unfortunately I get more requests for lab participation than I'm able to accommodate. But even if I don't have an opening now, I may have some upcoming opportunities, or other ways to help you meet your goals. Lab placement is typically based on academic strength, interests/career goals, and timing. Kinesiology majors (and pre-majors) are generally prioritized over students from other departments. Due to the timing and pace of our research projects, it is not possible for me to mentor Bio 152 students at this time.
