Undergraduate involvement is a key part of my research, and I play an active role in mentoring, advising, and supervising undergraduate and graduate students. Working within a framework of each student’s expressed career goals, I focus on career planning and development, critical thinking and the scientific process, and statistical and computational skills.
I am personally and professionally invested in promoting diversity in research and in agriculture. Representation matters, and equity in science can only be achieved actively fostering diverse and inclusive extension and research programs. See my CV for details on teaching and community outreach.
