Research mentorship for undergraduates
In line with the educational objectives of William & Mary, I mentor undergraduate students in research activities. I work with students interested in Ph.D. programs, economics consulting, public policy, or data science jobs. I also supervise thesis and independent study projects.
I also provide mentorship on job applications, interviews, coding skills, and guidance on their graduate school applications.
The jobs or internships in underline are those cases where I mentored the student during their job search/graduate school applications.
