I worked alongside Dr. Joshi this past summer as an assistant researcher investigating how nutrition affects Metabolic Syndrome. This was my first real experience in a research position and Dr. Joshi was very accommodating to my specific needs in terms of how to approach my research. He has taught me so much, well beyond from what I have learned about my topic through my research process. He went above and beyond, taking time out of his busy schedule to not only teach me about how to conduct proper research and how to write a research paper, but to also share his values and remarkable life experiences with me. He is truly an inspirational man and is wholeheartedly dedicated to his students. He is committed to providing his students the tools they need to learn about what they are interested in and works individually with students to tailor his mentorship to their specific needs. He has a devoted passion for both his work and for that of his students.

Without hesitation, he will help anyone who comes his way and receives everyone with open arms. He will not turn a student away, no matter their situation, and is dedicated to their education, knowing that they will in turn do something positive from their experience and newly acquired knowledge. He works tirelessly to complete any job he sets his mind to and never gives up on his personal goals and dreams. He has been an outstanding role model for me and has helped me grow as a person through his teaching skills, inspiring stories, and outlook on life. His intelligence exceeds all expectations in that he has a well-rounded view of the world and is eager to pass on his knowledge, philosophy, and kindness to all. I genuinely value and appreciate the time I was fortunate enough to spend working with Dr. Joshi and the knowledge he has shared with me.
