Please describe why someone applying to graduate school who is interested in a female-friendly department should choose your department.

We have an excellent, small department. Because it is small in size there is a sense of comaraderie that is difficult to achieve at larger institutions. This is a very positive environment for nurturing female scientists.

Please include the name of faculty or staff member and an email they can be reached at for further questions.
