I joined MPC as the Program Development Coordinator in August 2012. My job involves coordinating our infrastructure grants (mostly NIH R01s and standard NSF grants), working with our faculty and staff researchers to pursue external grants to support substantive research and publications, overseeing our Seminar Series, and helping to coordinate the University's Population Studies minor.
I love science writing in all of its many forms. In my position at the MPC I have the opportunity to work with scholars from a wide variety of disciplines to develop clear, cogently written arguments for a variety of audiences. I run our bi-weekly Writing Hunker, provide one-to-one writing consultations, and edit final drafts of grant proposals and articles. In addition, I continue to research and write on the history of twentieth century American ecology and occasionally teach in the History of Science, Technology and Medicine Program at the University.
