On Writing

As a graduate student, I write a lot. Most of this writing has been in the form of applications for grants and fellowships; a representative sample of both successful and unsuccessful applications is provided below. I have also produced scientific manuscripts, #scicomm pieces and many blog posts. Now, I make regular appointments with my dissertation, setting aside time each week to devote to writing this beast of a document.

As a writing consultant at the UC Riverside Graduate Writing Center in 2016, I provided feedback, critique, encouragement and support to other graduate students and their writing. Four of these graduate student clients were awarded the distinction of Honorable Mention by the National Science Foundation in the Graduate Research Fellowship Program 2017 competition. Current UC Riverside graduate students and post-doctoral scholars can make consultation appointments at the Graduate Writing Center here.
