Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary research and academic interests are in the development of young scientists. My work in this arena spans the continuum including: the 'basic science' of how undergraduate and PhD student fine tune career decision with a longitudinal study of 500 students; application and study of new coaching-based models to support early PhD students; use of group-based modesls to assist junior faculty develop as scientists; a randomized controlled trial of a totaly different approach to fostering diversity in academia.
