Summer Undergraduate Research Experience, Summers 2012, 2015, and 2016- SURE is a ten-week summer research program designed to attract qualified minority students into graduate school in the fields of engineering and science. I served as primary mentor of three students in industrial engineering and operations research. I met with them on a weekly basis and guided the construction of research ideas in health care.
Undergraduate mentor - I have served as primary research mentor for 3 undergraduate students. One student worked with me from Fall 2012 - Spring 2014. Under my guidance, this student applied to and won the President's Undergraduate Research Award, which financially supported his research work. This student presented his work at the Georgia Tech Spring Symposium for undergraduate research. I have aided him in the graduate school application process, and he is currently sending out applications to PhD programs in operations research.
President's Undergraduate Research Award, Fall 2011 - current. I review ~6 applications each semester from undergraduate students applying for the prestigious award. A formal rubric is filled out for the benefit of the undergraduate research office, and feedback is provided to each student about the quality of their application and how to improve.
Judging Future City Competition, Spring 2013 - Spring 2014. A national competition for 6th - 8th graders to build an effective city. I judge Sim City cities according to a detailed Rubric.
