Georgia Tech faculty-student pairs represent the best the Institute has to offer and illustrate how outstanding teachers and pupils can inspire each other
Tim Farmer and Flavio Fenton
Great teachers don’t merely impart knowledge, they kindle imaginations, inspire confidence and instill the desire to learn more. Meanwhile, the best and brightest students don’t simply earn passing grades, they ask tough questions and challenge their own preconceptions as they gain understanding and experience.
At Georgia Tech, you’ll find world-class faculty and their star pupils who are helping to redefine the traditional teacher-student relationship. They’re working together on undergraduate research projects, collaborating on papers and presentations, even testing and perfecting new models of learning.
Take Petit Institute researcher Flavio Fenton and recent alumnus Tim Farmer, for example. Fenton directs the CHAOS (Complex Heart Arrhythmias and other Oscillating Systems) Lab. Farmer is a Navy veteran who joined the Fenton lab because he wanted to make an impact in the world.
Fenton and Farmer are featured in the Georgia Tech Alumni Magazine, where you’ll meet six Georgia Tech faculty members and their extraordinary students.
