Interested Research Students

I am currently looking for students (PhD and Master students) to undertake research projects related to my research interest areas (see above and refer to my publications). 

Interested students are advised to complete the UNSW HDR Self-Assessment on https://selfassessment.research.unsw.edu.au/. If your assessment results reveal that you are “likely to be competitive for a scholarship”, or you already have a scholarship, I encourage you to contact me and provide the following information: (a) your CV with details of any research experience/publications; (b) a brief statement outlining your suitability; (c) a copy of your academic transcript(s); (d) details of your proposed funding arrangement (e.g. duration of an already-awarded scholarship or results of the self-assessment tool); (e) results of an English-language test, if completed and required (see UNSW's English Language Requirements). Information regarding key dates for applying for admission to a research degree and research scholarships at UNSW can be found here.
