My work revolves around project and research management at Arizona State University, where I collaborate with interdisciplinary teams at the intersection of cooperation and cancer evolution research. I'm also the Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Arizona Cancer Evolution (ACE) Scholars Program and the Cooperation Scholars Program, two interdisciplinary mentoring initiatives for undergraduate students that provide research and professional development training while building community and fostering team and project-based work. For more details, please see the Mentoring or the Professional Work section. 


    My research interests include (e)-mentoring, the intersection between technology and higher education, and barriers to student success - such as students' basic needs insecurity.
