Advice for prospective students:
  • I am looking for new PhD students. Please consider my research interests and our centre's guide to applying. Also consider Why do a PhD?
  • Undergraduate internships for Australian students are advertised from time to time
  • I will reject (and possibly just ignore) people asking me for "Summer internships between May and August". It shows you haven't done the slightest bit of research about where we are located (hint: May to August covers the winter in Melbourne, Australia)
  • How (not) to write reports
