Thank you for your interest in graduate research opportunities in our group! One of Prof. Evans’ guiding principles as an advisor is to not overcommit himself so that he can best advise each member of our group. Given that most of our group is expected to continue into the 2023-24 academic year, we are currently not expecting to add any graduate students to our group in Spring or Fall 2023. This is subject to change, however, and we’ll update this page by October 2022 with the latest information. If you’re interested in the types of research our group conducts and think that UWM might be a great fit for your graduate studies, I strongly encourage you to contact Prof. Paul Roebber – who shares many of our research interests – to inquire about graduate student opportunities under his supervision!


Are you interested in our group’s overall research focus and have a specific project that you would like to pursue? We’re happy to help you prepare an application to an external graduate fellowship program, such as those offered by the AMS, NSF, NASA, and other entities. Because the deadlines for these programs are often in the fall before you would enter graduate school, students interested in applying to these programs are encouraged to reach out to Prof. Evans a year ahead of time (e.g., a student entering in fall 2023 should reach out by the start of the fall 2022 semester) to discuss research opportunities and plan your application. Please contact Prof. Evans to express your interest and learn more about these opportunities and working in our group – he’d love to chat with you! Your e-mail doesn’t need to be very formal – a message that introduces yourself and lets him know that you are interested in learning more is a great starting point, and we can strike up a deeper conversation from there.

Prof. Evans’ advising philosophy centers around treating you with respect, viewing you as a professional peer. He strives to get to know you individually and tailors his mentoring approach to your unique needs and abilities. He strives to ensure that you will have the opportunity to present your research at one or more AMS conferences per year and to publish your research findings as lead author in leading journals. Our group’s alumni have strong track records of recognition, and all have chosen to continue their studies to the Ph.D. and/or have found fruitful post-graduation employment across the field and beyond. Please feel free to contact Prof. Evans to learn more about his advising and mentoring philosophy. Likewise, please feel free to directly contact any of our group’s current members or alumni to inquire about their experiences in and perspectives about our group!
