This leads me to a second, very important, interest: teaching and developing creative scientists and productive citizens. I try hard to make my FRI course a practical learning experience for a diverse population of students that will improve and inspire students to become thoughtful, creative problem solvers while they learn the value of working hard (through the often frustrating challenges encountered in research or working toward any goal for that matter) toward a worthwhile long term objective.
On the side, I am keenly interested in the broad topic of signal transduction within the context of the immune system and I am investigating potential problems and models that can be translated into the topic of a future FRI research stream.

Now that you've used EUREKA to identify a faculty member whose research interests match your own, read about getting involved in research at The University of Texas at Austin.
The Office of Undergraduate Research recommends that you attend an info session before contacting faculty members about research opportunities. We'll cover the steps to getting involved, tips for contacting faculty, funding possibilities, and options for course credit.
If you aren't able to attend an info session, contact the Office of Undergraduate Research to schedule an appointment with an advisor.
