I view service as an integral part of the continuous development and improvement of my role as a faculty and as a citizen in this country. I am passionate about service because I firmly believe that the impact of my service lasts beyond the realm of my academic career. My notable mentoring services culminated in the award of a national NCWIT Undergraduate Research Mentoring Awards in 2013. I started the first National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Research Experiences for Undergraduate Students (REU) Site Program in my department. The chairing of the PhD proposal committee in my department since 2012 culminated in a proposal submitted to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) in June 2016 and approved in April 2017.
