Other student interns

I love to work with undergraduate and masters students and have mentored more than I can count. My mentorship always tries to include career advice as well as project advice, whether students are going on to research or not. Many students have gone on to careers in research, however, including some current faculty (Julie Kientz, Gary Hsieh, Ruth Wylie).
