Students in my lab
(click on links on the left to learn more about my students)
I am deeply committed to supporting undergraduate research efforts in my laboratory. I strongly encourage my students to develop their own research problems, approaches and expertise.
Research at the undergraduate level allows our undergraduate students to take a critical step at a point when they are learning and mastering the fundamentals of a specific discipline. It encourages them to apply their knowledge and to think beyond their normal intellectual scope. More importantly, it transforms them from “students” into “scholars".
