Mentoring

I received great mentoring from my doctoral research mentor, Blaine Fowers (see his website here), and have been fortunate to work with several talented students throughout my career. Below is a list of some of my student mentees:

  • So Yeon Park (Currently clinical psychology Ph.D. student at Brigham Young University)
  • Payton Jones (Currently clinical psychology Ph.D. student at Harvard University)
  • Maximo Acevedo (Currently undergraduate at Brigham Young University)
  • John Feldman (B.S., Human and Social Development, University of Miami)

I involve students that I mentor in all phases of the research process as part of their training. Consequently, students are frequently coauthors with me on publications and presentations, taking the lead as they develop increasing confidence in their abilities. Below are some examples of my work involving student collaborators (indicated with *):
