The lab is a collaborative effort and while each individual has a unique project they lead, there is overlap between the projects and input from everyone on all projects is encouraged. The projects are highly interdisciplinary and the fact that no individual is an expert in all areas is the strength of the lab. I seek people who are willing to learn and participate in topic areas outside of their expertise and people who are team players, willing to provide their expertise and insights into projects that are not their own. We have weekly lab meetings where all projects are discussed and questions, comments, and ideas are strongly encouraged. One on one meetings with the PI occur regularly, approximately weekly.
