Title: Assistant Professor
College: Health
School / Department: Health & Kinesiology
Mentoring Philosophy:

To start the research process, we will meet with the student researchers to understand what their career goals are and what they are hoping to take away from this experience. We will work with the student researchers to meet multiple times each week to discuss where we are at in the research project and make any necessary changes to our strategy moving forward in the project. Effort will be made to establish a community within the research team so that the student researchers feel supported in suggesting methods and practicing reflexive research. These meetings will provide a chance to debrief to assess student well-being, especially during the data collection stage given the emotional difficulty of the interview process. Debriefing will also allow us to assess where our mentorship is furthering the student researchers' success and where we can add more support. As mentioned above, the researchers will also be provided real-time mentoring in the field for data collection. While the student researchers will primarily perform the research duties described above, we believe the learning and mentoring experience must go beyond the immediacy of the project. Throughout the project, the student researchers will learn about general qualitative and quantitative research methods and engage in dialogue with us on these topics. Team members will also advocate for the student to extend their research further through opportunities for research presentation, including in the outcome of writing project results in the form of an academic paper.
