What pre-requisites do you look for when evaluating a potential thesis student?
Students interested in doing an honours thesis in my lab must have taken Psych 2H03, at a minimum. It's helpful if they've also taken Psych 3VV3, and ideal if they've also taken the lab course I offer in Human Memory and Cognition (Psych 3V03). Of course, I'm looking for students with a strong interest in human cognition, and in particular an interest in the topics of attention, memory, and cognitive control.
What information are you going to want from a student who is interested in working in your lab?
I'll want to look at a transcript, and it helps to have students e-mail me with a brief description of their research interests and long-term goals.
Please email me. Please include "! Thesis request" or "Independent study request" in the subject line of your email, as appropriate.
E-mail contact is preferred, after which we may set up an individual appointment to talk further.
