The following faculty members have expressed interest in supervising graduate students over a duration of a short informal reading course. The suggested format for the course consists of once-a-week hour-long meetings over several weeks to discuss papers/books in the area of mutual interest.

The courses are informal, and no grades or credit are given. Students and faculty can deviate from the suggested format depending on their preferences/schedules.

This list will be updated as more information becomes available. Faculty members not listed here may also be open to interacting with graduate students in a reading course format and/or as PhD advisors.
