If this sounds like you and you would like to join my group, please read the following information before contacting me:
1) I need to see your formal application to our departmental Ph.D. program before I can make any judgements about whether you will fit my group (and vice versa). I cannot comment on your chances of getting into my group until you formally apply and get admitted into our departmental Ph.D. program.
2) Please read 3-4 papers from my group ( Then, after you formally apply according to step 1 above, please email me (tmilenko [at] nd [dot] edu) a written summary (up to two pages) of these papers along with a related open-ended question of your interest that you would be interested to work on, explaining why. Importantly, by "summary", I do not mean that you should repeat the information from the papers in question. Instead, you should write your own commentary about the papers, in your own view/words.
3) After you formally apply, your application package is complete (including TOEFL/GRE scores, letters of reference, etc.), and you send me the up to two page summary from step 2 above, if your application satisfies Notre Dame's and our departmental admission criteria, I will contact you to talk more about your application.
