“One mentor gave me the following advice: Choose an important research question to pursue; then pursue it with joy and without fear.”

Huong N Higgins

Teaching students helps me remember what it is like to be young, curious about the world, and eager to learn. WPI students are very remarkable. Most seem to be natural leaders, or else they must be receiving very good coaching in leadership. It is such a pleasure to be alongside a community of students with a strong positive attitude. I enjoy my research because it keeps stretching my views and abilities. In doing research, I feel like a perpetual learner always trying to discover new worlds, constantly living the challenges but also the joys of trying.
