Mentoring

"As is the case for most scientists, it was through great mentoring experiences as an undergraduate student that I first became interested in science. It is therefore with great pride that I dedicate part of my time to providing inclusive, high quality teaching and advising to all my students and postdocs. Their success is first and foremost a result of their own efforts, but I am happy to be part of the process and to help them succeed in their chosen career paths. "

Dr. Cris Argueso
