Title: Assistant Professor
College: Social & Behavioral Science
School / Department: Family & Consumer Studies
Mentoring Philosophy:

My mentoring philosophy is based on principles of trust, support, and collaboration. I believe that individuals can excel in developing and carrying out creative and high-quality research when given the opportunity and supported with the necessary resources. Students can expect one-on-one and group meetings with experienced researchers for discussions of research ideas, methodological training, and professional development. Student researchers will receive training in using lab resources, such as prepared data files. I will offer students multiple opportunities to present their research ideas and share progress on their project with the full lab group. I aim to foster a supportive and inclusive research environment, emphasizing teamwork and mutual learning. In addition, I will support students in attending SPUR program meetings and trainings.
