I am former Director of the USC Security and Political Economy Lab—an undergraduate research lab led by Drs. Benjamin Graham, Jonathan Markowitz, and Megan Becker. I helped direct the Lab's trainings and professionalization, and recruited, advised and managed 65+ undergraduate and graduate research assistants (RAs).  

 

In addition, I built a mentorship structure, wherein each of the Lab's projects has a lead RA who meets with me twice-monthly. These RAs outline goals, assign tasks, and evaluate team members’ progress with the guidance of their PI. This system streamlines communication, cultivates leadership, and enhances the undergraduate research experience via peer, near-peer, and faculty mentorship. I have also helped to develop 5 institutional practices to increase the representation of women, first-generation, and students of color in academia and in industry: 1) targeted recruitment, 2) technical training, 3) applied research experience, 4) multi-level mentorship, and 5) membership in a carefully designed learning community. This holistic approach equips students with the skill-sets, background, and psycho-social support necessary to thrive in academia and beyond.
