Because of the growing amount of email I receive from non-UC Davis students, I make the following requests.
Students with top academic records are encouraged to write regardless of background if interests match.
If you have an especially strong academic record and you feel your background and interests are a good match, feel free to contact me with the information listed above. If you do choose to write, please indicate near the top of your email that you have read this web page, otherwise I will likely skim and delete it. Due to virus concerns, I will immediately delete all MS Word attachments. Otherwise, at this point, the best course of action is for you to apply to the department and we can talk further once you are admitted. The best of luck in the application process.
UC Davis is well-positioned in a "college town" setting 65 minutes from San Francisco and 90 minutes from Silicon Valley. The group enjoys strong relationships with many high-tech companies in silicon valley, the Sacramento area, and around the country.
