As part of their monthly tradition, UC Irvine’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) selected Dr. Richard Matthew as the UCI faculty mentor who has participated in and contributed most to the advancement of undergraduate research and creative projects. Any faculty member can be a mentor for students, although a student must be mentored by at least one member of the UCI Academic Senate. In addition to the title, a full interview with the Center for Unconventional Security Affairs Director is posted up on their website, which you can find here. Below reads a skimmed synopsis of the anything-but-skimpy career of Matthew, along with some kind words of praise.
The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) in the Division of Undergraduate Education encourages and integrates undergraduate students from all schools and academic disciplines into the research culture of the University by providing opportunities for faculty and students to work together on research and creative projects.
