Honors & Awards

As an educator, I consider one of my greatest honors as being able to encourage emerging scholars and policymakers. I have organized professional development workshops for young scholars writing articles, books, and job applications; mentored graduate students and faculty; and served on award committees for major grants and fellowships.
