I currently have one graduate students enrolled in PHYS 598. Another is due to enroll spring 04. The proceedure for requesting a thesis project is to come talk to me, tell me your interests and I will try to come up with a project as close to your interest area as I can, so long as it is in a field that I can work in! You must also find 2 other people to act on your thesis committee, and ask their permission. I will make suggestions as to whom would be a likely committee member.
I have been the advisor for the following thesess:
