Congratulations Dr. Thomas! This past week, one of my favorite faculty advisors was presented with the 2016 Excellence in Mentoring Award. University at Buffalo’s Institute for Research and Education on Women and Gender selected two faculty members who inspired students throughout their career to receive this award. I nominated Dr. Thomas for this award because she has closely guided me through the Daniel Acker Scholars program from freshman year until now. Dr. Thomas also traveled with me to Turkey on study abroad,¬†and encourages students from all backgrounds to pursue careers in STEM, including myself.
