I wish to serve on the University Committee to provide guidance into academic and administrative policy for the University, where I believe I bring a wide range of research, educational, and service experiences from my current position as well as my former position. I was trained as a physical chemist and my research is highly interdisciplinary, where I actively collaborate with faculty from medical school departments, physical science departments, as well as other departments in the College of Engineering (COE). I have been active in new course development and I am also a member of a national grant writing mentoring network for young scientists. I have performed extensive reviewing for NIH and NSF, including center grants. I am active in my professional societies in editorial roles, organizing meetings and serving on awards committees. I have worked extensively with BME and the COE staff in my administrative roles as well as in interviewing numerous new prospective BME staff members.
