ADVISORS AND COMMITTEE MEMBERS

The data available at MCHP are very diverse and complex.

While you do not need to have a MCHP Scientist on your committee to use the data, understanding the data is much easier if your advisor or committee member has experience working with these data.

Here is a list of the MCHP Research Scientists that are available to advise graduate students and to sit on graduate student committees.

See the MCHP website for a complete list of staff and adjunct scientists associated with the centre.
