Science is a team sport, and the best projects integrate diverse views to create new shared understanding. Mentorship in my lab occurs primary through regular individual (or small group) meetings, with infrequent larger lab meetings to foster relationships between teams. Students are challenged to describe research findings in their own words and to formulate their own weekly goals. Project mentorship pushes students to develop competencies in literature review, question formulation, pre-registration and power analysis, written and verbal communicaiton, experimental design, visualization and analysis of data, and programming skills. Weekly goals will focus on one or more of these areas, with deliverables that allow for concrete feedback to promote continued development. I am obsessed with how people can transform their lives for the better; if you are able to work independently and have a passion for research, I am committed to helping you to reach your goals.
