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".

I believe that learning is never restricted to the classroom or to the laboratory. Interaction with students outside the classroom in a variety of activities is very important. Thus, I try to engage students in activities that go beyond the standard classroom interaction, especially research, mentorship, and social activities. Lab should be fun!
