Dr. Beatrice Ombuki-Berman's Current & Recent Research Team Members
Announcement: Accepting New Students!!
If you are interested in doing graduate studies, RA or 4F90 honors thesis under my supervision, please see available Projects ,
or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org , or drop by my office.
- Undergraduate level: COSC 4F90 honors thesis, applicants from computer science department (and Neuro-computing Majors from Brock Center for Neuroscience)
will be considered. Send me an email
or drop by my office for a start date of September, May, January each year.
- Graduate level: Domestic (Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents or Canadian University student): Contact me about potential graduate study
possibilities. Fall start date strongly recommended although I sometimes consider a January start state for domestic students.
- Graduate level: International applicants - to optimize your chances for a Fall term entry (accepting only September start dates), contact me about research
in my group, and make your application by January 15th each year.
