I am an Associate Research Administrator for Professor Van Duyne and Professor Schatz. I joined the Department of Chemistry in June 2015. Previously I worked in Northwestern University’s Conflict of Interest office. Before coming to Northwestern I worked in survey research, managing government and private industry research projects. I am originally from North Carolina and have a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of North Carolina. I came to Chicago for graduate school and have an M.A. in Public Policy from the University of Chicago. I enjoy reading memoirs and spending time with my two daughters.
