A Note to Prospective Students

Decisions concerning admissions and financial aid here at Illinois are made by a small committee. Because I am not a member of this committee, I have no input to or influence over the admissions or financial aid process. Therefore, please do not send me e-mail requesting that I intervene on your behalf, as I cannot do so. As you might imagine, I tend to get many such requests; their volume forces me to ignore them without response.

If you are interested in evaluating the chances of receiving admission or financial aid before applying (and paying the application fee), you should look at the ECE department's admission information or the CS department's admission information pages.

Having said all of this, I am always looking for excellent students, and am generally able to support the most qualified students regardless of citizenship. Once you have been offered admission, you are more than welcome to send me mail about working with me.
