Current Quarter Updates

Group meeting schedule

We will meet as a group every week in 1001 Ghausi (you can reserve it from this link — if it’s for a closed meeting/session please indicate so in the booking). The dates will be listed below. Once I have everyone’s schedule we will set a time. During our first meeting we will decide on the agenda as well.NOTE: During the weeks we meet at as a group, we will not have scheduled individual meetings but I will be available for at least 3 hours for you to drop in – no meeting required. I will also be available other times, as needed.

Individual meeting schedule

Plan to meet with me individually every second week. Below I will be listing dates for meetings. In every meeting please come prepared to answer questions and go over your progress. If you want me to prepare for something, please send me an email 24h before our meeting.

NOTE: Please send me meeting minutes of our meetings no later than 24 hours following the meetings.

End of Quarter scholarly product

You are expected to engage in specific areas of scholarly activity to develop skills in critical analysis; to assimilate new knowledge, concepts, and techniques; to formulate clear and testable questions from a body of literature and to advance research in your topic; to translate ideas into written products; and to develop as leaders in the field.

You are expected to engage in projects to develop hypotheses or substantive scholarly exploration and analysis that require critical thinking. I am here at all times to provide substantial feedback, work with you, and support your development. Every we do will be first and foremost shared with your UC Davis peers. You are encouraged to discuss your thoughts and progress with every member of the Geotechnical Graduate Student Society (GGSS) and to share your products (from a literature review to a code). This will only benefit our work!

We will set the scholarly product together each quarter. Examples will include:

  • A literature review outline / manuscript
  • A research manuscript with a hypothesis and results
  • A research proposal (see GRFP below)
  • A conference paper and presentation

NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP)

Part of research is explaining through writing your ideas and methods of research.  We will decide together if the GRFP is something you should submit. You can find more details about format here.

End of Quarter Deliverables

… we will decide on these during our first meeting….
