If you are interested in joining the lab, I would recommend that you first take a look at the research and publication sections.
Graduate studies are truly challenging. This does not mean that it cannot be fun or enjoyable, but rather that to succeed it requires first and foremost a strong interest in what you are doing. For that reason, it is important for me to take the time to discuss with you about your interests and whether my lab can offer what you are looking for. No diploma is worth being miserable for several years!
Curiosity, for me, is more important than grades. Thus, if you are truly interested do not hesitate to contact me.
I will help you to develop your scientific skills as best I can. I do not know everything though (that is why we do research!); the exchange of knowledge is bi-directional here, and often you will need to dig to find the answers you are looking for. My duty is to provide you with the tools and opportunities for you to succeed. My goal is that at the end of your project you are better than me on your thesis subject.
I value a good work-life balance. I also value personal as much as professional developement. Graduate studies are a lot more than just a job or something leading to a job. The goal here is not to reach the finish line but more to discover yourself, your own interests and how you want to contribute to a better society along the way.
