Want to meet?
During the summer, it is best to email me at lirani (at) ucsd.edu for an appointment. I am primarily working off campus and in the field.
Writing about postdoctoral opportunities?
If you are applying for your own postdoctoral fellowship and want to explore collaboration with me, please explain the connection you see between my work and yours in your email. Include a project proposal and your CV. Please know that I do not currently have funding to support postdoctoral scholars and will only be able to respond to personalized inquiries.
Writing as a prospective student?
I am happy to discuss research directions. However, I won’t be able to offer feedback on application materials such as statements of purpose. Also, know that our graduate students are admitted to the program in general, not to work with any particular advisor though you are welcome to explain advisors with whom you see a close fit. Most commonly, students come in and take courses for a year or two and slowly find an advising relationship that works with their changing interests.
