Probably the most exciting part of this wonderful job is to mentor students. I have mentored several undergraduates through the LTER Research Experience for Undergraduates program during long field campaigns. I have always done my best to inspire them to pursue their core passion. Seeing them creating their own careers has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
