Students Advised: 

As the graduate advisor for the Department of Electrical Engineering, I provide ongoing academic support. Since 2014, I have guided traditional cohort students to independent registration through careful consideration of each student's academic profile. During individual meetings with academic probation students, I focus on problem solving to help them with credit hour issues, retention, and to improve their GPA. 

I also collaborate with other university departments, including the University Center for International Education, the Brandeberry Career Development Center, and Wright State Graduate School. I keep informed with different departments to plan and execute workshops for international students to guide incoming students. In acculturation modules, we discuss orientation, academic integrity, course planning, problem solving, self-awareness and pursuing internships; these are all important areas that I believe help students to succeed in their future careers. 

I enjoy meeting prospective students and sharing Wright State University's unique qualities, including education fairs in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and Hyderabad, India.  These experiences have given me a better understanding of where our students come from, what it takes to study overseas and the risks and rewards of an American education.
