Valerie Washington, IOE PhD Student, and her co-advisor and IOE Assistant Professor, Joi-Lynn Mondisa, discuss a potential project using social networks in the IOE Building. Washington is a first-year graduate student who Mondisa has characterized as excitable and wanting to research any and all projects. Mondisa, knowing the rigors of the PhD track ahead of Washington, is trying to get Washington to focus on a single project. Photo: Joseph Xu/Michigan Engineering, Communications & Marketing
