Mentoring

Undergraduate students are amazing! I enjoy discussing with students about their intellectual inquiries. Subsequently, I guide students regarding research framing and finding educational resources. Through this mentorship, I learn supervising and management skill for a research project. Often, this mentoring service results in scientific papers, research posters, and help with my research project.
