Below find a list of research publications and presentation materials that have been created by current and former members during their time in our lab.  As much as possible, we have included access to final versions of our articles or presentation materials for the purposes of non-commercial academic discussion, scholarly collaboration, and teaching. If you notice any research missing from this list, or if you find material that you believe should not be linked here, please contact us with the relevant details. 

NOTE: Due to copyright considerations, we have been unable to provide final published versions for a select few published articles. Any references that have a “**” beside the title are instead linked to pre-publication versions of the research.  Additional links to the final published version on the publisher’s website are included at the end of each reference.
