Mentorship is a critical part of my professional identity. My mentorship style is based on a scaffolding approach in which I initially help students professionally and personally acclimate to academia through weekly meetings to check-in on progress and adjustment. As we start to develop projects together, I become actively involved in guiding research theory and methodology. As my mentees become more comfortable and experienced, I start to give them full autonomy with support and guidance as needed. My goals as a mentor are to provide my students the necessary tools and confidence to become successful researchers. I want to encourage my mentees to push the boundaries of my research and to come up with ideas that are novel and that expand my knowledge and understanding.
