Doctoral Dissertation and Thesis Committees Experience

As a committee member and chair, I was responsible for promptly reviewing thesis and dissertation drafts and providing feedback. Working with Institutional Review Board (IRB) submissions. In addition, I have successfully mentored 75 doctoral and thesis students on topics ranging from psychology to criminal justice and intelligence (national security).
