Working with students is an intentional part of my scholarship. In the last eight years, I have mentored 17 undergraduate students through formal independent research projects and supervised 5 masters projects. Before working at Loyola, I also was major advisor for two PhD students at Oklahoma State University. Many of the research projects that I supervise lead to peer-reviewed publications. Below is a list of the projects I have worked on with undergraduate and graduate students. Hover over the project title to see if a link to a paper is available.
