Research Assistants:

Trinity University’s ongoing commitment to experiential learning has provided a series of opportunities to engage undergraduates in research. These have included competitive fellowship programs, such as the Murchison Program, as well as for-credit independent study courses during both the academic year and summer session. I am delighted to have joined a university with this commitment to experiential learning through research, and I would be proud to serve as a reference for any of the following students.

Prior to working at Trinity, the University of Michigan afforded me the opportunity, through its Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) and Independent Study program, to mentor and work with undergraduate researchers. I selected each of the following students as research assistants after observing their performance in the classroom and/or a professional interview process, and I have been fortunate to gain experience mentoring Michigan’s excellent students.

In addition to these research assistants, I have also co-mentored a large number of research assistants with both Michael Heaney and Rick Hall.
