Note to Prospective Students
Thanks for your interest in working in my lab! Please read the following information before contacting me, according to your current status.
- Undergraduates currently at McGill: You can send me an e-mail to ask about research projects that might be available. Please include your transcript and a description of why you want to work in natural language processing, and be sure to highlight any relevant background you might have. I am more likely to be able to supervise you if you are planning to apply for a summer internship (under the NSERC USRA or SURA program), or are planning to do an Honour's thesis.
- M.Sc. applicants: M.Sc. admissions are handled centrally in our department. Please see this page for application instructions. I do not typically fund beginning M.Sc. students until after they have taken a course with me or shown other evidence of research potential. Unfortunately, I cannot evaluate your profile or tell you what your chances are by e-mail.
- M.Sc. students currently at McGill: If you're looking for a M.Sc. thesis advisor, I recommend taking (and doing well in) my graduate-level NLP course.
- Ph.D. applicants: Please submit a full, official application through the official application procedure. See this page for more information. If you list me as one of your potential supervisors, I will be notified and will review your file. You can send me an e-mail after submitting your application to let me know that you have listed my name if you'd like, but this is not necessary. Unfortunately, I cannot evaluate your profile or tell you what your chances are by e-mail without an official completed application.
