My lab is always looking for mentees at the undergraduate and graduate student level who would like to gain research experience in human neuroimaging. I am also happy to serve on Senior thesis and dissertation committees that are generally related to my area of expertise. In addition, I would be happy to serve on Career Panels on STEM research, especially those geared toward women in STEM.
