SAND Lab Interest Form 2022-2023 Cycle
Please complete this form if you are a prospective PhD student interested in joining UChicago and working in the SAND Lab. Sorry for the impersonal feel of the survey, but filling this out means you are on a short list that Heather and Ben will definitely look for when reviewing the incoming applicant pool. Feel free to give short, brief answers.

Note: for 2022-2023 cycle, we are indeed actively recruiting PhD students, with emphasis on security/privacy, adversarial ML/robustness, and wearable/mobile security. We are a tight-knit, supportive lab and welcome diverse opinions and perspectives. For most of the last decade, women have outnumbered men in SAND lab (sometimes significantly). We will generally not look at applications until the application deadline of December 15. For more specific questions, please do reach out to Ben and Heather via email.
