Office of Postdoctoral Scholars
I have benefited from and seek to provide mentorship and advice that helps others find what works for them, rather than replicating exactly what I chose to do. I think more graduate students would benefit from this as well and I hope to provide that support to UB students, particularly those who feel unable to speak directly with their faculty mentor.
I received excellent mentorship during my graduate school experience, but graduate school was still hard in many ways. I have experience seeking mental health care, finding work life balance and pursuing an alternate career in STEM while partnered with a faculty member (two body problem job search!).
