Welcome to the University of Georgia and to my lab.  If you are considering attending the University of Georgia as my student, then this site will serve to give you an idea of the research I am currently involved in as well as what to expect from me and from yourself.  If you are already accepted as my graduate student, then I expect you have already heard a lot of what appears here.  I hope your tenure here will be rewarding and fun.
