I greatly value the opportunity to train future leaders in software engineering through supervision and mentorship. I form productive relationships with students by providing research skills training, keeping communication open, being approachable, and encouraging students to pursue and share their own independent thinking about their projects, and develop their critical thinking and writing skills. I am committed to guiding students as they learn time-management skills in a research environment. In the past five years, many of my Ph.D. students have a successful publication record that is ready for the next stage of their career.
