For prospective PhD students thinking of applying to Princeton

I will be accepting graduate student applications in the fall and winter of 2016, for students interested in enrolling in the PhD program in Psychology at Princeton in fall 2017. 

If you are interested in applying, please note that this website is updated as of August 2016, and you can get a very good sense of what I am currently working on with colleagues and students by clicking on my research page. I update this page with working manuscripts as soon as we are ready to share, and otherwise I list projects in progress.

If you would like more information about me beyond this website, here are a few articles about my research approach, and my work with my colleagues.

I often receive emails from prospective Ph.D. applicants with requests to talk about my work and what it would be like to do research with me. As of 9-8-13, I decided to refrain from having these personal conversations in advance of reading all applications, because I do not wish to favor students who received advice about how to connect with prospective advisors or who have connections to me through my current colleagues. Before we make final admissions decisions in our department, we fly out our top candidates to visit the campus and to have one-on-one discussions with their desired mentors, graduate students, and researchers in the department. I view this as the time when the candidates and prospective mentors can have these types of conversations, to figure out whether Princeton (and my research group) would be a good fit.

Outside of the application process, I'm always open to requests for conversations about the topics and methods of the research we are involved with here in my lab. Please do feel free to get in touch with those types of questions.  

Thank you for your interest in our research!
