Students work in small groups during the week, and attend two two-hour weekly meetings on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons; the Tuesday meeting is (usually) a lab session in which students work individually or in groups, and the Thursday meeting is (usually) a team discussion of what progress has been made in the past week and what sub-projects will be undertaken in the following week.
To get a sense of what the research entails, check out the group's Web-page or look at the gallery of pictures outside my office door. If you are thinking of joining the group, you should take a look at the suggested reading-list; you may want to look at some of the articles on tilings in my list of publications.
