At this time, I am not accepting new graduate students. I maintain ongoing research collaborations with GNS Science New Zealand, and with the Rock Physics group at the U.S. Geological Survey. Most of my projects involve physical models applied to geophysical data, so my students need to have a solid foundation in math and physics, with some computer programming experience. Students who come from backgrounds other than geology, such as math, physics, or computer science are welcome.
I maintain a set of group guidelines that I expect my students to adhere to. The guidelines are available here. To introduce yourself or ask about potential opportunities, please contact me at bartlowno (at) missouri.edu.
