I do, from time to time, work with undergraduates at Penn State to develop independent research projects.  As we are a primarily computational lab, the students that are best suited to our research have a background in population dynamics, statistics, mathematics, or programming.  However, I am very open to developing cross-disciplinary projects with students from a range of academic backgrounds.  If you are interested in the work in the lab, please contact me at mferrari@psu.edu.
