I am most excited to work on projects that… require critical thinking and collaboration.
I am looking for partners who can help me… see and think about issues in a different way.
A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… working on a big project where everyone on the team was equally enthused. I enjoy working on the topics that interest me but I think the team makes or breaks the work.
Innovations in my field that I am most excited to work on… include fostering a more diverse workforce, building a strong and collaborative community, and creating a field that young people want to get into and stay in because they feel supported.
