MENTORSHIP

Mentoring is one of the activities I value and enjoy most within academia. Under the supervision of Dr. Annette Stanton, I previously served as a mentor to undergraduate students participating in the UCLA Psychology Research Opportunities Program (PROPS). The purpose of PROPS is to foster educational development through the direct supervision of research assistantship work and independent research projects in order to facilitate future graduate studies in students that have been historically underrepresented in graduate programs. At Northwestern University, I have mentored post-baccalaureate trainees who are interested in gaining research experience before applying to graduate programs and undergraduate students in formal internship programs like the University of Illinois at Chicago Liberal Arts and Sciences internship.

As part of our collaboration, undergraduate and post-baccalaureate research mentees have previously presented independent research projects at research conferences and successfully applied to graduate programs in medicine, psychology, and social work. If you are interested in joining our laboratory, please do not hesitate to contact me. I especially encourage students and trainees who are underrepresented in health sciences (i.e., women, racial/ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds) to reach out if they are interested in our research.
