Future Data Interest Questionnaire
Thank you for your interest in our research group (http://futuredata.stanford.edu/).

At any time, we have an extremely limited number of visiting scholar / researcher and student intern positions available (and sometimes have none). Due to the volume of inbound interest, we are unable to respond to each and every message we receive. As a result, we have provided the following questionnaire. We guarantee we will read the responses to this form but cannot guarantee a response. However, an impressive set of answers to this questionnaire is much more likely to result in a response than almost all other forms of contact.

If you are already a Stanford student, please email us.

If you are interested in pursuing graduate studies at Stanford, please submit an application directly to Stanford Graduate Admissions: http://cs.stanford.edu/admissions/general-information
