Understand and inspire
Eric Laws, a PhD student at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, studies bacterial cells and data storage. His mentors at UNC Greensboro have been role models in both teaching and research, encouraging him to embrace each academic challenge and to always keep moving forward. They’ve inspired him to pursue his greatest passion: communicating scientific ideas through teaching.
“To see that little bulb that comes on in people’s eyes when they understand something is pretty cool,” he says. “I want to be a teacher that students come to, and then leave with more knowledge and less stress.”
– Eric Laws, Nanoscience
