Undergraduate Mentoring

Each year I work with a few undergraduates as a mentor. Some ask to work with me after meeting me through an academic support program, and others do independent studies with me after taking a class (e.g. UWP 120: Rhetoric of Science, or UWP 121: History of Scientific Writing).

Some of these students have presented work at conferences, and one has published an article.
