I am passionate about mentoring students i

I am passionate about mentoring students in research and proactively

involve them in projects. I am proud of all of my students and love to show off their work!

Below, previous students' projects are featured. You can also see some example photos of

them presenting their work at conferences.


If you are a student interested in doing an independent project with me or in working

on some of my research, please click on the tab "Join the Lab" for more information.
