T eaching and mentoring

teaching and mentoring

from my advisor (David Notkin)“My philosophy about working with students is taken from my adviser, NicoHabermann: 

‘Focus on the students, since graduating great students means you'll produce great research, while focusing on the research may or may not produce great students.’”
