Graduate school, Academia, Soft Matter Physics
I enjoy discussions and debates on a wide spectrum of issues, to understand and welcome different perspectives and approaches to solutions.
I also enjoy cooking and translating observations from the kitchen to the lab. From an outdoors standpoint, I enjoy hiking and visiting national/state parks.
Type of Students:
Students who are thinking about pursuing doctoral studies or academic careers.
Number of Students I can Mentor:
9 months 2 weeks ago
Ideal Mentoring Relationship:
I think of mentoring as a two-way learning ecosystem.
As a mentor, I get to be there for the mentee through their candid concerns about career choices and the path to take towards achieving them by connecting my mentee to different resources or folks from my network.
On the other hand, I get to learn about the different perspectives and trade-offs mentees bring to the table owing to their unique life experiences as well as expand my current network.
