If you are interested in working with me, please take a look at the Research Section to see if any of my current projects interest you. I am also interested to hear your ideas for possible research topics!

Preferred Background

The most important thing is to come with a good, positive attitude. Inevitably, research will not always go the way you anticipated and it is essential to maintain perspective and continue pushing through. If you come with the right attitude, we can fill in other gaps as needed.

In terms of academic preparation, the following are desirable:

  • Degree in engineering, earth science, or other basic science
  • Quantitative skills
  • Programming and software development experience or willingness to learn these skills

Please do not hesitate to contact me at mhgardner[@]unr[.]edu if you are interested in working together or if you have any other questions.
