I am a Research Program Manager on the Facebook Research Operations and Academic Relations team. I focus on fostering engaging collaborations, projects, programs, and conference activities for the Facebook Infrastructure research teams. I help build strong strategic plans to help our research teams be impactful and bring value to the academic community.
Prior to joining Facebook, I worked in scientific research and publishing for the past 10+ years at the National Institutes of Health and, most recently, the Public Library of Science (PLOS). For the majority of my time at PLOS, I developed and led programs focused on deepening relationships with 10,000+ academic researchers who support the portfolio of journals through peer review and optimizing the peer review process for more than 25,000 scientific articles per year.
