PhD Students: Past and Present
I have worked with a few PhD students over the years. In addition to being extremely selective in working with PhD students so to ensure compatibility of work styles, I prefer to work closely with students so as to develop long-term peer relationships that will lead to sustained collaboration, much like my own collaborative relationship with Professor Fred Davis evolved from the time I was his PhD student.
