Rebecca is always happy to meet with students to discuss their research interests. She is a former Ivy League student-athlete (Columbia Basketball), former high school teacher and coach, and grew up in Hawai'i. As such, she's particularly happy to talk about balancing work-life-school-sports, studying far from home, and teaching.
