This page lists current BYU-affiliated doctoral students and PhD graduates who have or who have had significant ties to BYU.

WE NEED YOUR HELP FILLING OUT THIS LIST! Wiki sites are collaborative by design. This is what makes them so powerful. Our collective memory is far better than any one of ours is alone. So, if you know of anyone that ought to be on this list but isn't (including yourself), please take a minute to add them yourself. Simply log in and click the Edit tab just above and to the right of this page. Thanks!!!

TO ADD A NEW ENTRY: Simply copy and paste the following two lines into the page editor (above, right, after logging in) and replace the filler words accordingly:

|[[LastName, FirstName]]||[[CurrentInstitution]]||Status||[[PhDUniversity]]||GraduationYear||[[SubDiscipline]]||[[FieldArea]]||[[Method1]], [[Method2]]


NOTE: Don't worry about making mistakes when you contribute. All previous iterations are saved, so you can't break anything. More experienced users will be able to move forward from where you left off. Right now, we just need the content. Style can come later.
