Thank you for your interest in my research on trustworthy autonomy at the University of Michigan.
Prospective graduate students
If you are outside U-M, please consider applying to the U-M graduate program this Fall. Due to the large volume of emails, I might not be able to reply to all emails from prospective students. Still, I welcome all emails, and I read them. If you have a website and a Google Scholar entry, please share them with me. I will certainly consider you for financial aid decisions; the decisions are made in the Spring.

If you are master’s student at U-M, please consider taking one of the classes I teach, or becoming an intern in the group. Once we are all back in Campus, I also invite any opportunity to chat in person. If you would prefer to email me, please do so, and aim to include a CV or resume, an (unofficial) transcript, your website and, if any publications, your Google Scholar entry.
