Update on Status (as of June 2020): Well, I have had this posted for a few years and had a ton of great students show interest. Unfortunately, my attempts to secure funding have fallen flat. I am leaving it up as it is still a topic I'd love to help a student explore, but I am not actively recruiting on it for now.
UPDATE: I am excited to announce that this position was filled by Karen Bartelt!
To start in Fall Semester, 2018.
