    Navigating authorship?

He already turned down one of my ideas for a paper (which was to expand my independent research poster) and gave it to a grad student to publish instead. Fine, I get that there's a...

Since he already had a really solid idea of what kind of work he needed done for the project, I wasn't able to contribute much in that regard.
