Dear Prospective Graduate Student,

Thanks for your interest in the Collinge lab! I currently advise students in the graduate program in Environmental Studies (ENVS) ( I am the primary advisor for one Ph.D. student and one MA student. My current students conduct independent and integrated research related to conservation biology, restoration ecology, and the integration of ecological processes with human values and policies. My current research, funded by an NSF LTREB grant, is focused on vernal pool plant community ecology and restoration, which is based at my long-term field site at Travis Air Force Base, California.

 I currently have administrative responsibilities as Director of the ENVS program and will take a sabbatical leave for the Spring semester 2016.  With those responsibilities and my upcoming sabbatical leave, I have decided not to recruit any students for Fall 2016. Please check back next year if you remain interested in working with me as a graduate student. Additionally, I recently shifted my joint appointment with ENVS and EBIO to being fully rostered in ENVS, so I will no longer be the primary advisor for students in EBIO.

Thanks again for your interest in my research program, and I wish you the best in your research pursuits!
