Research and Teaching

Will's research meshes perfectly with his teaching, allowing him to “give [students] a little window into the field” and provide “more of the cutting-edge science than what they would get from the textbook.” Not only does he incorporate his lab-based findings into his courses, but he also gives undergraduate and graduate students alike the opportunity to conduct research in his program, either through independent projects or via collaborative work.
