Consider topics you are interested in and questions you have about these topics.
Search online to learn more about these topics and identify faculty members at OSU who are exploring topics related to your interests.
Brainstorm keywords and phrases to search on the internet. For example, Google “Oregon State University” + "research" + “keyword/phrase” and click on a few of the links that appear. Read through the links to see which faculty members are mentioned. If someone sounds interesting, do another Google search for that specific faculty member to read more about their work.
Step 2: Create a List
Create a list with faculty that you would be interested to work with (minimum of 5).
Do some background research on the faculty member you plan to email. What is their general research focus? What projects are they working on? What have they published lately?
Provide their name, email, and why you want to work with them.
Send your list to Stephanie and wait until you hear back from her before proceeding with these steps.
Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR, is located within the traditional homelands of the Mary's River or Ampinefu Band of Kalapuya. Following the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855 (Kalapuya etc. Treaty), Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations in Western Oregon. Today, living descendants of these people are a part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon (https://www.grandronde.org) and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians (http://www.ctsi.nsn.us/).
