AS A SUPERVISOR

I am not one who imposes my research agenda on my students, and I will not allow or expect students to do a ‚Äėsubset‚Äô of my research projects. I firmly believe that the process of dissertation/thesis-writing cannot take place unless the student first plants the seed of his/her own research idea. My role as a supervisor is to then help the student develop the idea to fruition. Students under my supervision can expect that they be constantly challenged on their argumentation, their methodology, and most importantly, their writing.¬†
