Position title: Professor, Department of Surgery
Professor. Member of the Faculty since 2006. Former member: Graduate Faculty Executive Committee; Biological Sciences Divisional Committee; Medical Student Research Committee; Scientific Review Committee (ICTR, SMPH). Current member: Undergraduate Academic Awards Committee; Research Review Committee (Chair); Vice Chair Research, Surgery. The University of Wisconsin Madison is strong public institution that embraces faculty governance as a unique and important aspect of life. Strong faculty leadership is crucial to the success of this faculty governance. I have been a faculty member since 2006, evolving in roles on multiple university committees. My interest in serving on the University Committee stems from my desire to represent the faculty to ensure transparency and unity as we move into a post-Covid environment at the UW-Madison. Faculty representation is vital at this crucial time, ensuring the long tradition of governance.
