"Play is the highest form of research"
As an undergrad I was a tutor for high school and fellow undergrads, I also participated in chemistry education research as part of research experience for my degree. While both tutoring and researching, I found that I truly loved teaching and mentoring younger students. As a member of the Avasthi Lab, I have the privilege of mentoring high school, undergraduates, and graduate rotation students during the school year and also in the summer. It is important to me that I develop this skill so I can pass on my knowledge and hopefully inspire young scientist along the way.
