As a mentor, it is very important to me to understand what are the students’ interests and future career goals to find opportunities and experiences that would help them in their future academic journey. At the beginning of the program, we will design a plan in which we will come up with aims that we would like to accomplish during the summer. We will discuss how to manage time efficiently, by balancing time commitments in the study vs. time dedicated for writing and other educational activities. I will also provide guidance in every step of developing a research project and how to present it to an audience. In addition to regular meetings, I enjoy having regular interactions to establish more personal connections and informal mentoring, so I keep my door open and students are welcome to pop in any time.
