- Currently Dr. Ravi Kalpathy and I are mentoring an undergraduate student on a research project in random networks funded by the School of Arts & Sciences.
- In summer 2020, I, along with Dr. Curtis Holliman and Dr. Ravi Kalpathy, mentored four undergraduates in summer research projects which were funded by the School of Arts & Science and the School of Engineering.
- In 2018, 2019 and 2021, mentored undergraduate students in research in graph theory. They presented their findings at the Catholic University of America’s annual Research Day and made it to the list of finalists.
University Service: I have served in various capacities for my Department, for the School of Arts & Sciences and the University: member (2004-2007) and alternate member (2007 - present) of the Committee on Appointment and Promotion of A&S, Dean Search Committee (spring 2016), Unit Standards Committee (2019-present), Chair of the first Part-time Faculty Committee (2015 - 2018), and more.
