In conjunction with my teaching and research activities, I am and have been actively engaged in graduate student advising and mentoring at George Mason University. I see mentoring activities not only as an avenue to strengthen the link between research and teaching, but as crucial for training the next generation of experts and scientists in my field.

Potential students please read this before contacting me.
