Teaching & Advising

Advising

Jonathan Lin (UC Berkeley undergraduate; 2017-present; co-advised with Eugene Chiang)
Jonathan is building a model of planet formation with a goal to find the formation conditions of warm Jupiters.

Mentorship

At UC Berkeley, I led the graduate student mentorship program in the Astronomy Department with two other mentor masters. Together, we assigned the student mentors and faculty academic advisers to each incoming student, monitored the academic progress of the first and second year students, and held annual discussions with the head graduate adviser to address any concern raised by the students and the faculty members. I also mentored two graduate students.
