Laungani Lab

My research students work on a variety of topics which allows not only for the student to center their research around their passions and questions that intrigue them, but I can learn along with them.   This allows the student to teach me about their topic, and I believe helps the student to see themselves as not only as researchers, but as my colleagues. 

Below are a list of my research students in my lab and a very brief description of the general topic/question that each student is working on (including their ultimate goals).
