More than 50 research students have been supported by my federal grants in the last five years, and I encourage networking among my students and with many other students and colleagues. My research students have gone on to successful careers in fields ranging from plant breeding informatics to biostatistics to high-school science teaching. Career mentoring and training in project management is a key part of my student mentoring strategy.

About the Developers

This site was built by Onshore Studios, a website creation and design company run by two UNCW graduates. We used the skills gained from our time at UNCW to start a website building and design business. Ethan, our administrator, graduated with an accounting degree from the Cameron school of business. His knowledge of keeping financial records and managing clients and work orders is what keeps our business running smoothly, legally, and efficiently. Andrew, our developer, graduated with a degree in Computer Science. His coding and design ability is what creates our elegant sites and maintains high quality products for our customers. Andrew has experience in many programming languages, but primarily works as a Ruby on Rails devloper for N2 Publishing. This shows you should not take the lessons you learn at UNCW for granted because one day you could be running your own business as well.
