Chairperson, Department of Physics

Regarding summer research and honors theses, over my 17 years at Bridgewater, I have mentored probably 12 to 15 students.

For me to be a good mentor, I need to be seriously engaged in the project myself and want to see it succeed. I work in a science collaboration model, so my students are working with me together on scientific questions that are part of my larger research program. I think the mentoring happens naturally as the student and I are deeply working together toward figuring out something new about the universe.

I love it. It’s just fun to work with students and help them pursue their research at the same time.
