Jess practices the kind of academic feedback she teaches: using critique to make others' work better rather than tearing it apart or trying to mold it into a different project. Her feedback is incredibly helpful for helping me identify exactly where I need to clarify my thinking without pushing me into a particular direction. She also has a wonderful way of cultivating community among her students. Even though (as human geographers) none of us work in a lab together, Jess still convenes regular "lab meetings" where everyone checks in with each other and discusses questions/difficulties/progress/goals over food and drinks in addition to checking in with us all individually. I feel really fortunate to work with Jess as my supervisor.
