Because of the interdisciplinary nature of my research program, I have always recruited, trained, and advised students from a number of departments. Many of my students have, in fact, received their degrees in programs with which I was not officially affiliated, although I served as their primary advisor. In these cases, my designation was necessarily as co-advisor.
