As a supervisor for your graduate or undergraduate project, Simon encourages you to take ownership of your research program and make a meaningful scientific contribution with your thesis. He supports this by ensuring you have opportunities to supervise your own field staff, develop critical thinking skills, and synthesize and present your research at scientific conferences and in publications. He also uses regular lab meetings to foster open communication and multi-disciplinary dialogue among his lab members. Finally, you will have frequent opportunities to collaborate with industrial and government partners, enabling your work to have a direct impact on applications and policy development.
