Mentoring

Mentorship and engagement.

Whenever possible, I participate in programs that facilitate mentoring between senior and junior faculty, faculty and students, and academia and public life. I have a particular interest in mentoring underrepresented groups to start and succeed in science. Here are some of the programs I have participated in, either as mentee or mentor.
