A central philosophy of the MOGEL group is that graduate education and new scientific discoveries are integrated, with students playing a central role in research projects. Research projects are never routine, and the goal is to prepare students for a variety of professional careers. Students interested in graduate school under Rodger Harvey’s guidance, are encouraged to contact him directly by email (rharvey@odu.edu).
