Personal Facts/Hobbies: I recently joined BU last year. Before that, I was an assistant professor in Merrimack College, North Andover, MA. I am passionate about working closely with and mentoring students, so I am more than excited to be a part of BU that values students’ learning and individualized mentoring for each student. As an individual who comes from a different cultural and national background, I am committed to supporting students from various communities in their personal and professional growth. I am grateful every day for the opportunity to learn from my colleagues in BU who have a unique focus and experiences.
