Robin has received the Everett Mendelsohn Excellence in Graduate Mentoring Award! Recognizing only a small number of Harvard professors each year, the award honors faculty members who offer outstanding support and encouragement while promoting the career and personal development of their mentees. Awards are based solely upon the nominations of graduate students. Congrats, Robin!
