Mentor who have altered my life: I have had the good fortune to benefit from numerous mentors at various stages of my education/training, but I will always be grateful to Daniel Jones, my undergraduate research mentor. He showed me rigorous scientific investigation and human kindness.
In my time off, I enjoy: Hiking, biking, tennis, wine, and indie rock
What profession, other than your own, would you enjoy? I think I would like teaching undergraduate chemistry.
