Eshan V. Dave

Dr. Eshan V. Dave is an assistant professor in the department of civil and environmental engineering at the University of New Hampshire, and has been with the department for a year. Dr. Dave specializes in engineering materials and transportation engineering. He is a veteran mentor from his previous appointment at the University of Minnesota Duluth, but Chris is his first Inquiry author. The experience was positive; Dr. Dave notes, " As a researcher, [Chris] truly made a positive impression on me... the experience really allowed me to work closely with a student... I believe I learned to be a better mentor and supervisor." It's likely Dr. Dave will continue to mentor Inquiry authors in the future, as he "firmly believe[s] that learning to write in journals such as Inquiry is very useful to students in engineering."
