Student Visitors and InternsIf you are an student in a related area at another institution there may be an opportunity for you to spend some time visiting with my group or doing an internship. Please note that I generally do not take undergraduate interns from universities outside of Canada. Graduate students from other institutions may visit for a day or two (e.g., giving a talk, meeting with myself and other students) or stay for longer periods of time to build up a collaboration.
Postdoctoral FellowsIf you have recently finished your PhD or are expecting to finish it soon and would like to do a postdoc with me you may be able to join my group as a postdoc. Note that currently I do not have specific funding available for a postdoc. If you do not have your own funding, please note that you would need to successfully apply for funding before joining my group. Please do not apply for funding before contacting me via email or the form above.
Graduate StudentI will have space for new students for the 2021-2022 academic year. Admissions decisions are made by a centralized committee in consultation with faculty such as my self. To ensure that I see your application and that it is given due consideration mention my name in your application to the EECS Graduate Program at York University and fill out this form. Please note that application deadlines are typically in late Fall (e.g., November or December) for admission to the program in September of the following year. Applications submitted after the deadline are rarely considered, particularly for international applicants.
IMPORTANT: I do not run the admissions process. I cannot give you an update on the status of your application unless I have already contacted you directly about your application. I cannot admit you directly to the program without an application to the program. I cannot waive the program requirements around GPAs or English-language scores (and they are generally quite strict). Do not ask.
Are you taking graduate students?Yes, I will be considering students for the 2021-2022 academic year at both the MSc and PhD levels.
Is there funding or financial support available for your graduate students?Yes, in general all of my graduate students are fully funded at or above the levels detailed by the EECS graduate program. There are also other opportunities for scholarships and additional funding available from a variety of sources.
When are admissions decisions made? What is the timeline of the admissions process?Generally I will begin reviewing applications in December and start interviewing candidates in January. I will begin making my recommendations in February but they can be made as late as April or May depending on a number of factors. Official admissions offers will typically go out a few weeks after my recommendations are made, assuming that your application is complete and otherwise meets the admissions requirements. Note that if your application is incomplete or non-standard that it could take longer or even entirely prevent the official offer from being made.
