Short Bio

Last comments


With more than two decades of combined experience in university research administration, technology project management, electronic research system administration, and compliance program management, I understand the complexities and hurdles that the staff in Sponsored Programs and Research Compliance face in order to support and promote research funding acquisition. We want our technology systems to function seamlessly, integrating personnel data, financial data, and compliance all into one comprehensive suite. We want someone (else) to maintain and enhance our systems, to anticipate technical problems and resolve or escalate them as appropriate. We want someone who can translate “Sponsored Programs” into “Techie” so our requirements are fully understood, and to train us quickly on new functions and features. I'm a proud “SPOer” with technology project management expertise and Human Research Protections Program (HRPP) management experience.
