Why Marquette

I love working with students on their creative projects, no matter where they are in the creative process. I love seeing what ideas they come up with and how they go about implementing them. I try to create a safe culture in the lab, meaning I want to ensure students that it is okay to fail; it’s okay to not know the answer; it’s okay to ask for help. The only way you are going to learn is by trial and error, by trying new ways and new methods of solving problems.
